Storytelling and Marketing Strategies for Give Big Campaign Success

Tuesday, March 26th, 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm

WHAT: During Give Big, we connect with our donors and the broader community by sharing stories that inspire people to give, feel proud to sustain our mission, and welcome new supporters. But making the story you share in your appeals and across your social media channels shine bright enough to propel giving can feel like an overwhelming task with a 24-hour campaign. Join Allison Rock, Director of Philanthropy Content for Message Lab Media, for an hour-long workshop on how to confidently select, write and share your story through email, print and social media. She'll share a straightforward outline for telling your story and making a strong case for support throughout your campaign communications. 

WHO: This training is for all nonprofits participating in Give Big. Allison will be sharing ideas about storytelling that are applicable for organizations both big and small and cross all areas of nonprofit work.
