BUS 510 Week 2 Assignment 1 Developing a Vision and Mission Statement

The township is facing several issues and the mayor feels that before raising taxes to
cover these items, the time is now to get out in front of the issues by forming a
fundraising committee or looking for an established nonprofit agency to help search
for grants to help the city and the police department. The city needs to look for a
grant, or grants, to pay for police equipment and computer training for the entire
force. The police badly need four (4) new computers, twelve (12) bulletproof vests,
eight (8) telephones and two (2) motorcycles (or horses) to catch criminals on foot.
Once an agency is selected or a committee is formed internally, the township will
also need funding for eighteen (18) street lights for a high-crime neighborhood and

For this assignment, pretend that you work for a nonprofit organization in this
township and you are already on a standing committee for community development.

agency can get the computer training portion of the grant monies. The director
mentioned that there may be a person in the community who may be willing to
donate a motorcycle to the city through your nonprofit agency. Your committee does
not meet again for another week, and you have been tasked with rewriting the vision
and mission statements for the agency to include these new projects. Keep in mind
the overarching statement from the agency was a combined vision and mission
statement of the agency “…an organization which strives to provide the highest
quality response and help to the community through clear communication, training,
shared knowledge, and accountability.” You will revise the broad statement into two
(2) statements, a vision statement and mission statement. These will comprise the
road map for the rest of the assignments. Use the Internet to locate references that
will help you to write powerful vision and mission statements for grant proposals,
and gain insight into how organizations and nonprofits view vision and mission
