Advanced Storytelling – with Coaching Time

We’re told we must share a story in our communication. The truth is storytelling has
gotten a bit lazy. We put a picture on a page, share a few facts about the person in the
picture and hope people give a bunch of money.

As a master storyteller, Lori knows exactly how to utilize storytelling as a powerful tool
for fundraising & donor stewardship. In this session you’ll learn how & why to share
mission moment stories to inspire giving. You’ll learn how to craft & share your
organizational money story. Get ready make changes in your fundraising
communication that will have unimaginable effects.

Attendees will:
– Learn how to effectively share a mission moment story.
– Learn what your “money” story is and how to share it so you raise more money.
– Bring your pre-written mission moment story & money story to receive coaching
& fine tune your message for appeals, social media & other communications.
