Strong communications have never been more important for nonprofits to entice donors and create awareness for their mission. This workshop will provide a platform for you to begin thinking strategically about and find solutions for telling your organization's story. 

Many nonprofits worry, "How do we find the budget to hire professionals or pay for promotional campaigns?” “Can’t we just use volunteers?" "How can an outsider understand our mission as well as we do?" During our time together, we will cover the fundamentals of finding all your available resources, social networking, and professionals connections to get your message heard. No matter the size of your organization or your budget, there is a campaign strategy that is right for you.

Development, fundraising, and communications team members, as well as leadership and directors, are encouraged to attend. 

Topics Covered:

  • Successful & Not-So-Successful Storytelling Campaign
  • Movement Building & Brand Ambassadors
  • Humanizing your Organization 
  • Creating Call-to-Action Campaigns
