What Are Some Examples of Inspiring Vision Statements?

A vision statement defines an organization's long-term aspirations in broad terms, such as Habitat for Humanity's "A world where everyone has a decent place to live." Teach for America's vision statement is "One day, all children in this nation will have the opportunity to attain an excellent education."

A vision statement can be an inspiration for the members of an organization, as it can be used to define goals and hopes beyond day-to-day services. Goodwill's vision statement, for example, is "Every person has the opportunity to achieve his/her fullest potential and participate in and contribute to all aspects of life."
