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

We're looking to tell a beautiful and inspiring story around the development of our new a tool. This tool is going to revolutionize the way people face cancer and it came to be because of the experience of survivors, caregivers, patients, and medical experts who want better for those facing cancer. Will be used in many facets: grant applications, donor appeal letter, awareness campaign, tool launch, etc.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have many survivors, caregivers, patients with active disease, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have medical experts who vouch for the need of our org and tool, and the ability to provide any other information you need.

Storytelling Project

Joy was great--very organized, clear in what she was looking to achieve, but also very open to suggestions. I was actively engaged in talking through goals and audience. All feedback and edits were helpful. A pleasure to work with.
