Event description


Uncover the Source of Your Winning Pitch

As fundraisers, we seek to find an avenue of connection with potential donors. Ideally, our story will speak for itself. But often it doesn't land with the emotion and urgency we desire. However, we already have all we need to tell that story — we simply haven't dug deep enough to fully uncover its source: the unpremeditated authenticity that makes stories real, gritty, and undeniable.

May 2017 Workshop Overview

In four, 1.5 hour sessions, Fundraising Story presents an innovative mix of storytelling training, group practice, media exploration, case studies, and real-world homework assignments to produce a usable fundraising story the moment your finish the course. We'll build the arc between need and solution so that your fundraising goals and their outcomes are clearly and inarguably connected.
