Your organization is doing great things in the world. But your financial needs year over year are probably pretty consistent unless you’re launching a new program or service. Unfortunately, this consistency can give rise to us sounding the same trumpet all the time.
So how do we avoid telling boring or repetitive stories? This week a Storytelling Non-Profit newsletter reader wrote in with this very question and I’m excited to be answering it in this week’s Storytelling Q&A.
“I work at a social service organization as the Development Manager. We have several programs that always have wonderful stories to share. But many of these stories are very similar – homeless youth, addictions issues and so on. I don’t want our stories to become boring or repetitive so my question for you is this – how can we tell our stories without getting a “here we go again” reaction for our donors”
