Are you ready to learn the most effective and simple actions to take NOW to inspire your community to give more later? Summer months have traditionally been a “slower” time for fundraising. Successful nonprofits are finding ways to storytelling during the “off season.” This session will help you learn how powerful storytelling will connect your donors to their impact and cultivate giving well before year-end asks. This session isn’t about spreadsheets, moves management, or a new-fangled technique to get people to give. It’s about the power of making authentic, clear, word choices to inspire people to give more. What you learn MAY forever change the way you communicate your fundraising messages. We’ll take a look at outside-the-box examples from other nonprofit organizations to get you started using storytelling this summer — to meet or exceed your fall fundraising goals.
