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.
For museums and arts organisations:
- Association of Independent Museums – Success Guides: Successful Fundraising at Museums
- Arts Council England – Making the case for art & culture
- The National Archives – How to fundraise: writing a case for support
- The National Archives – How to fundraise: building a business case
Using your case for support in a funding application
When applying for funds it is important to tailor your case for support to the requirements of your chosen funder. The National Council for Voluntary Organisations has advice on how to write applications.
