Nonprofit storytelling serves as a bridge between various stakeholders, including donors, board members and the constituents we serve, forging empathy and understanding. It is a powerful tool for cultivating a sense of community, rallying support, and inspiring individuals to become active participants in the pursuit of positive change. Nonprofit storytelling breathes life into statistics, turning them into stories that resonate and linger, prompting individuals to take meaningful action for a better, more compassionate world.

In this workshop through the Foundation's Nonprofit Leadership Series, StoryCorps' Lisa Nelson-Haynes will help us:

  • Provide narrative framing techniques to share with stakeholders.
  • Learn the importance of "setting the table" to get the story you want.
  • Review and discuss the tenets of ethical storytelling.
  • Leave with take-aways and actionable items to help begin incorporating storytelling practices in your organization.

This session is limited to 2 attendees per organization. If you have additional staff that would be interested in attending if capacity allows, you can add them to our wait list by emailing [email protected]
