For the first time ever, and just in time for planning and writing your fall fundraising appeal, I’m delivering a trio of online webinars designed to give you a quick and effective deep-dive into nonprofit storytelling.
Teaching nonprofit fundraising professionals to use storytelling to raise more money with ease and joy is my passion. That’s why I jumped at the opportunity to deliver The Power of 3 – Storytelling series of online webinar workshops with Grant Station.
During the webinar series I’ll teach you the science behind why storytelling is the most powerful communication tool you can use. Plus I’ll walk you through a step-by-step process on how to write and share stories that raise significantly more money.
Each webinar builds on the previous session. By the end of the three 90-minute sessions you’ll have a comprehensive foundation on not just why storytelling is so important, but how to increase your fundraising dollars yet this year.
Here are the webinars:
How to Find and Craft Powerful Nonprofit Stories
Finding and crafting a story that evokes emotion takes time AND help from others. In this webinar, you will learn how to inspire your friends and colleagues to come up with compelling stories that can help you raise more money.
If you’ve ever thought — our staff doesn’t help me find good stories to share — this session is for you.
This webinar will be held on Thursday, August 1, 2019, and will benefit fundraising and communication staff, as well as board members.
We all know money talks. The important question is: HOW does YOUR organization talk about money? In this session we will dive into the topic of talking about money as a fundraising strategy. You’ll learn how to share mission moment stories that include your need for support, but don’t sound like “begging” for money. The secret tool that makes this an advanced storytelling session is discovering how to share action-causing stories.
This webinar will be held on Wednesday, August 21, 2019, and will benefit executive directors, and fundraising and communication staff, as well as board members.
The Power of Visual Storytelling
In an age overflowing with technology and lives that move at 80 miles an hour throughout the day, what is it that will make your message stand out? Sharing stories. Research tell us stories are remembered 22 times more often than facts alone. In this session, we will go through the power of visual storytelling. You’ll see examples of why sharing facts and stories is more powerful when combined with an image. You’ll also learn what works and what doesn’t when using visuals in your storytelling.
This webinar will be held on Thursday, September 12, 2019, and will benefit fundraising and communication staff, especially staff making updates to websites and postings on social media.
Register for the Power of Three webinars together or individually. I look forward to helping you raise more money with the tools from each session!
