Stories to Support Causes and Fundraising
“Storytelling is the most powerful ways to put ideas into the world today.” – Robert McKee Author, Lecturer and Story Consultant
Successfully telling of stories to support causes and fundraising is fundamental to building community awareness and support. Great stories can be sourced from the core on the ground activities, whether as an international organisation working with a team overseas or from a group working locally.
Your job is to encourage them, your donors, and beneficiaries to tell their story. The key is to get the message out you are looking for stories and for you to progressively collect them. Do this, and over time you will have a library of stories that can be wheeled out to support your various fundraising initiatives.
Potentially you could even then take these stories and bind them into a book to celebrate your successes.
Critical to your success is careful planning of fundraising campaigns enabling the preparation of the story to meet your needs. Often stories will arouse emotions as they bring alive real situations, real problems, and pull at the heartstrings. Sensitivity is often needed.
We would be happy to work with you in the development of your causes and fundraising stories.
