The road to remarkable begins with a strategic, well-crafted case for support.
Make it remarkable!
In the marketplace of causes the remarkable standout.
They are the organizations and the people who do things in a way that make others remark, talk. The Irish writer and poet Oscar Wilde said, "The only thing that's worse than being talked about is not being talked about." Talk, the sharing of ideas, fuels change. It is the only thing that does. This is true across the sector, whether the cause is for better access to healthcare in local communities or for sustainable farming practices in Burundi.
What are your donors talking about? Does the case for your cause spark conversation? Does it ignite passion? Is it driving change for the better?
The road to remarkable begins long before you sit down with a donor. It begins with a strategic, well-crafted case for support.
