Strengthening Your Organization’s Story
Stories that Sizzle

In the arena of nonprofit storytelling, we convey our messages across a variety of formats – brochures, grant proposals, presentations, flyers, website language, grant reports and annual reports – to a diverse mix of audiences.  Your written materials provide a point of entry for funders, clients, partner agencies and community members.  Whatever the message, successful storytellers know their audience and recognize potential opportunities for their agency.  When your message conveys meaning – when your story sizzles – your audience wants more of what you have to offer.

In this workshop, we will:

  • Utilize the Three Organizational Voices matrix to maximize targeted use of data, anecdotes and images.
  • Identify your audiences, as well as the types of information and delivery strategies that will be most effective.
  • Assess strengths and gaps in current and recent documents.
  • Explore the internal edge in our work that separates familiar territory from promising, innovative and uncertain new possibilities.

This workshop is intended to be immediately applicable to current and upcoming projects. Participants are strongly encouraged to bring a range of documents – including recently completed, old stand-bys or current works in progress – for review and consideration.
