Best Practices for Nonprofit Storytelling Strategies [PODCAST]


Believe it or not, but the pressure on you to report on your nonprofit organization’s impact may actually be keeping you from getting more people to get involved. Reporting numbers is not the same as storytelling. It is great storytelling that gets people to care about your organization… and fund it.


So, close out those spreadsheets for a few minutes and listen to this sage advice from two women who have spent their careers helping organizations grow and prosper.

In this podcast, you’ll learn:

  • WHY telling a story is important- the emotional aspect
  • HOW to tell a story- where to start and where to go
  • WHERE you can share those stories- ways to amplify the story
