How to raise $65,000 in a day without spending a penny. Like a boss | TECHNOLOGY CONNECT PEOPLE DO GOOD | Scoop.it

A great story with a fundriasing lesson from Mark Phillips:

 

"The next night they returned for revenge and though he put up a fight, Omari was outnumbered, hit in the face with a machete and woke up in hospital.

It was clear that the attacks would continue until the wooden fence protecting the orphanage and the small vegetable garden could be replaced with a high wall and barbed wire.

Inspired Giving -- Using Stories To Increase Donations

Inspired Giving -- Using Stories To Increase Donations | TECHNOLOGY CONNECT PEOPLE DO GOOD | Scoop.it

One of the greatest challenges for non-profits today is how to increase donations.

 

No matter what time of year it is, nonprofits are always faced with the challenge of raising funds.  So I have several resources to share with you that I trust will help you find, craft, and share your stories better to make your fundraising more successful.

 

There's a PowerPoint presentation and audio recording that go together talking about the how and why stories work in fundraising, worksheets to help you develop your non-profits core stories, and an academic article talking about what nonprofit stories must have in order for them to work.

 

I just added (12/23) the audio file and improved PPT, along with additional resources & worksheets so go grab the latest stuff!

 

Enjoy & happy holidays ...
