Impact statement
This project will save us $2,397 , allowing us to open a second home for adults with disabilities

Project Details

What We Need
  • A compelling narrative, or set of stories
  • Persuasive copy that can be used in appeals to donors, annual reports, grant applications, and media relations
  • Popular examples: Organization's founding story, a program achievement or milestone, a look back at the past few years, organizational backgrounder, etc.
Additional Details

I need a series of stories I can use on social media, on our website, and in appeal letters.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have a 7 year history -- so there should be something in there, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have interviews done with various people connected to our org, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help

Stories help me emotionally connect to our organization -- we want people to be able to 'get' the importance of our work, and storytelling would help with that

Project Plan

Prep: Information Gathering
  • Volunteer Manager and Professional discuss the objectives of project and key audiences
  • Volunteer Manager provides Professional with relevant background materials (e.g., annual reports, white papers, brochures, organizational history)
