How to Write a Mission Statement
A short guide to mission statements from The Grantsmanship Centre.

At the very least, your organization’s mission statement should answer three key questions:

  1. What are the opportunities or needs that we exist to address? (the purpose of the organization)
  2. What are we doing to address these needs? (the business of the organization)
  3. What principles or beliefs guide our work? (the values of the organization)
