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'd like to create an evergreen story depository to use for donor communications like our annual report, our website and in appeal letters.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have appeals from past campaigns, annual reports, emails to donor, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have time to chat with our team and can connect you to supporters, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $2,397 , allowing us to have extra bandwidth and create compelling content despite the furloughs we've recently experienced. I'm looking for help to create compelling stories in the time of Covid-19 to encourage support.

This will be helpful by providing the AAC with a variety of compelling content to share with donors, supporters, and members of the Club to highlight the impact they have on our community and the role they play as a community member.
