I’ve got a fresh list of resources and inspiration for non-profit storytelling for you!
Interviews & Resources
npENGAGE from Blackbaud recently published a new e-book of Big Ideas. This includes a feature from me on storytelling and donor retention.
Lianne Picot of Story Powered interviewed me on how to create cultures of storytelling. Such a fun conversation!
I shared a guest post on The Fundraising Coach about the most important fundraising story that you’re not telling. Marc and I also did a webinar on this topic last week, and I have to say it was my favorite webinar I’ve ever taught.
Brady Joesphson of re: charity shared a collection of tips on writing for year-end fundraising, including one from me. And by the way – if you don’t already read Brady’s blog, I highly recommend subscribing! It’s one of my favorites.
The Nonprofit Times shared 5 elements of a good story.
I enjoyed reading this recap from the Social Good Summit 2015, which is working to achieve some of the goals set by the UN. Storytelling was a big theme.
I often talk about the importance of knowing your audience in order to tell effective stories. Claritas is a wealth of information by zipcode and could be helpful for your organization.
As many of you know, I live in Vancouver, Canada, which is often referred to as “Hollywood North.” Tons of TV shows and films are shot around the city. But despite how often Vancouver plays other cities in shows and films, it rarely plays itself. Recently, a group made a short documentary (9 minutes) to explore this more. It’s a really cool film, and if you are a film or TV show enthusiast, you might also enjoy watching it.
