Writing your case for support

From Our Toolkit

You case for support is the compelling argument you make to the funder to secure their investment. You can develop a case for support for your whole organisation or for individual projects.

It is good practice to develop an overarching example for your organisation which can then be tailored for different funders. When writing your document it is recommended to get the input and feedback of a range of people from your organisation.
