Do you, your staff and board members feel uncomfortable talking about money? It’s much easier to talk about your amazing work. But that’s just one component of successful fundraising communication. Letting your supporters know the costs of keeping water clean, mentoriing children, changing laws, or helping veterans is equally important. Sharing costs alone can be dry and uninspiring but when your money story is combined with a story about one person – people listen. And often, they give more and stay giving longer. You’ll learn how to reduce “talking about money” discomfort and how to powerfully include your money story in any and all fundraising communications. As a result of this workshop, participants will…

1. discover how to answer the question “What is our money story?”
2. learn how to calculate and articulate their money story
3. hear how to powerfully combine their money story with a mission moment story to cause larger contributions
4. have time to practice and share their money story.
