Develop Mission Statement

WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?

  • A one sentence description of why your program or organization exists.
  • A well-stated mission statement will keep your community partners and volunteers not only engaged but champions of your LOSS Team.

  • All future decisions should be filtered through the mission statement. “Does this help us accomplish our stated mission?”
