Making Your Case

Making Your Case


Thank you for your interest in Charitable Ventures’ Incubation Lab course: Making Your Case.

Applications are due by April 19, 2022.

Space is limited to 4 projects who agree to the terms and conditions and complete the application thoughtfully.

Please review the terms and conditions prior to completing your application.

Course Overview

Are you making the strongest case you can to attract investment? A strong case statement allows you to organize your data and outcomes into a thoughtful and compelling narrative for use in grant seeking and fundraising. It helps to streamline ask areas and ensure that you are consistent in your messaging.

Projects will individually work with our long-standing consultant, Mission Up, who has created many case statements and understands the importance of such a document for successful grant writing. Mission Up will guide you through developing your own comprehensive case statement that will compel and inspire your donors and funders.

Following the creation of your case statement, Charitable Ventures will review the statement and create a prospect list of 5-10 grant funders. The prospect list can help you put your newly-designed statement into action.
