How Can Stories Boost Your Impact? 

 

  • Increase empathy

  • Encourage giving

  • Demystify complex concepts

  • Encourage program registration

  • Explain the needs your organization is filling

  • Provide evidence to policymakers

  • Promote transparency

 

  • Create space for partners/participants to tell their own stories 

5 Basic Types of Nonprofit Stories 

 

1. Your Founding: The origins (and the "why") of your organization 

 

2. Your Focus: The core challenges you tackle and how your approach adds value

3. Your Impact: How you and supporters are effecting change

 

4. Your People: Profiles on donors, staff, board, volunteers, and clients/participants.

 

5. Your Future: Your vision o the change you want to make in the world or what your work will lead to.

Is storytelling important to you – but you lack the time or in-house staff to develop quality content?

 

Let me help you as an external writer! I love getting at the heart of what you do and writing compelling stories that will engage your audience. 

 

I can help you tell your stories for use on a variety of platforms:

 

  • Website

  • Newsletters/email updates

  • Blog

  • Annual reports

  • Fundraising appeals and campaigns

  • Social media

  • Reports

  • Press releases

  • Fundraising collateral 

  • Events

  • Speeches

Practically speaking, my service can include:

  • Helping you identify your existing stories and/or figuring out the right stories to tell

  • Background research and/or interviewing subjects (if appropriate)

  • Writing and editing stories that reflect your brand voice and deliver your key messages

  • Strategizing on how and where to most effectively use your new stories

I especially love helping organizations discover how to repackage stories for different platforms. It's a great way to stretch your resources and reinforce your brand and message.
