The Art of Storytelling: A Powerful Tool to Engage Funders
Storytelling is a powerful tool for engaging donors and other funders. How do you identify the best stories to "sell" your impact to funders? What are the best ways of telling the stories? How do we re-invent or share our stories in a way to not communicate the same ones over and over?
Join our panelists Crystal Robinson (Program Officer, Siragusa Family Foundation) and Emily Dreke (Vice President of Development and Communications, Chicago Foundation for Women), led by Moderator Pon Angara (Principal and Creative Director, Barkada Circle Storytelling Studio), to learn how best to create persuasive stories that combine the heart of your mission with why funders would care about the issue and support your work.
