Do you realize that people--that donors--remember a story far longer than they remember facts and figures alone?   


How are your storytelling skills?


In this session, we'll examine the value stories play in your organization's fundraising, program promotion, and even board recruitment.  We'll explore the structure of a good story, tips to get better at storytelling, and ways to use storytelling to share information, build your professional capabilities, and bolster your organization's financial position.

Designed for

Executive directors, board chairs, and anyone involved in grant writing, fund development, and board recruitment.
