A magic “fix” for all your fundraising challenges appears to be to share more stories. You’ve got a picture, a few facts about the person in the picture, and you’ve got your story.

Unfortunately, that’s not enough to get people to take action. While sharing a story about your impact IS important, often what is called a story is actually a report.

This session will dive into the topic of sharing “mission moment” stories AND talking about money as fundraising strategies. To move from sharing reports to engaging, action-causing stories you’ll learn how to use Lori’s secret sauce that makes this an Advanced Storytelling session.

You’ll Learn:
1. Why most stories are reports, not stories.
2. What makes an engaging, action causing story.
3. Your money story.
4. How to powerfully blend your people and money stories to raise MORE money.
