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.
For our upcoming fall newsletter, we would like to include a survivor story so readers can see why our mission is important and how important our services are. Typical survivor stories feature women and children as survivors of domestic violence or sexual assault. Our goal is to tell the story, then reveal at the end that the survivor is a non-typical survivor, perhaps a male or someone with a disability.
What We Have In Place
- We currently have survivor story details, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have past survivor stories and quotes, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $2,397 , allowing us to focus our time and resources on engaging the community in educational activities.
Our mission is to eliminate domestic violence and sexual assault. One way we can do that is by engaging the community in our mission by sharing survivor stories. It's easy to talk about the issues and share facts and data, but putting a face and voice to the issues is what truly gets people involved. We need people to be vocal about our agency and the injustices of domestic and sexual violence.
