Mission statements are an essential part of all organizations so that they can establish their goals and present them to shareholders and the public. Without a focused goal, companies will not be able to make a large impact on any one thing. More specifically in philanthropic work, you should think about what you want to achieve.
Our COMMERCE 4MG3 class chose for our mission statement to be “increasing youth mental wellness in the Greater Hamilton Area.” This is because after reading the Vital Signs report for Hamilton we realized that mental wellness is a large concern in the area and we would like to see improvements in our community. Additionally, we can relate to youth and the stresses associated with this age group because we fit in the same age category. We also chose to use the phrasing “improve mental wellness,” since mental wellness is a wide spectrum and we agreed that we would be happy to support any organization whose goals involved helping the mental wellness of local youth.
