Three Ways to Take Advantage of Nonprofit Online Trends

by Gerard Tonti

Trends come and go, and it’s up to your nonprofit to time it right and ride a trend’s wave for as long as possible.

It seems every day there is a new fundraising term, but you just have to develop the right strategies to manage them.

Online Education

Advanced Storytelling (NEW)

Wednesday, August 21, 2019

We all know money talks. The important question is: HOW does YOUR organization talk about money? In this session, Lori L. Jacobwith 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. During this webinar, you will (1) learn what your money story is; (2) learn how to talk about money so it inspires more giving; and (3) learn the best questions to ask so you can gather story nuggets to craft action-causing stories. The webinar will benefit executive directors, and fundraising and communication staff, as well as board members.
