    The Cause Manifesto: Be Courageous

    Be Courageous. We will dream big dreams, and have the courage to change and adapt in order to make our vision a reality. Courage may require that you step into the unknown. It may require difficult conversations. It will require that you find a way to overcome whatever fear is preventing you from taking the next step.

    The Cause Manifesto: Be Powerful

    Be Powerful. We will believe our cause is meaningful, and act in the belief that it has the power to change the world. Power comes from strength: a courageous and engaged board; a confident and competent leader; a clearly articulated purpose; and a mission embodied by the character, culture, and voice of the organization.

    The Cause Manifesto: Be Positive

    Be Positive. We will choose our words well, for they will motivate people to follow, donate, advocate, and believe in our cause. Optimism is a better motivator than pessimism. Internally and externally, stakeholders will respond to positive messages with a positive response.

    The Cause Manifesto: Be Trustworthy

    Be Trustworthy. We will seek accountability and transparency, acting and speaking in a manner consistent with our values, character, and culture. Clarity — the principle of clear and focused communication — can only be achieved when an organization makes its communications choices from the perspective of mission-driven design. Its purpose, culture, character, and voice must be unified in support of the cause.
