At a time when the challenges and needs facing nonprofits have increased at a faster pace than income
- your message must be clear to compete with other causes
- your strategy must be focused to deploy resources most effectively
- your stakeholders must be inspired to spread the word
- and you must have meaningful measures to track both performance & outcomes
Fundamental to all four—message, strategy, inspiration & metrics—is clarity of mission, and a concise, compelling and memorable statement of it.
