What is your mission?

Example mission statements:

"To increase recognition for volunteering, enable community engagement and maximise the impact of civic involvement." (Volunteer Now)

"To work for the child's right to play." (PlayBoard)

One of the fundamental questions for any group or organisation is, "what is our purpose?" The mission statement should clearly define your purpose. It is a short, formal statement about:

  • what the organisation aims to do (its prupose)
  • or whom (beneficiaries)
  • here, why or how.

It is the reason the group or organisation exists and helps keep everyone involved in the organisation focused.
