a. A brief description of the organization and its mission and vision, as well as a description of how it came to be (its history).
b. The demographics of the community your organization serves, followed by the ways in which both the board members and the staff reflect those demographics.

c. A description of the organization’s position and role in the community. Who are the organization’s collaborating partners in the community?
d. A discussion of the ways the organization is unique in comparison to others providing similar services.
