I'm in the process of writing a business plan for our non-profit organization. We raise money to grant wishes of children with life threatening medical conditions as well as for some children's educational and recreational purposes. I've been a part of the organization for too many years to be able to clear my head and try to do this without any taking into consideration the knowledge I already have of the organization.
So....here's my question....assume you are the person that decides who gets your company/corporation's donations...you sort through hundreds of requests from non-profits that are asking you for a contribution. What do you want to know about my organization and what will make my organization stand out from everyone else and what would make you pick me to contribute to over everyone else???
Any advice would be very helpful and sincerly appreciated!

You may want to read through grants, and see what actual donors look for. http://www.donorsforum.org/s_donorsforum/index.asp
