There’s a type of story that works incredibly well to raise money…
…an incomplete story with a current need.
Here’s a video I recorded last year with Chris Davenport from the Nonprofit Storytelling Conference that explains what I mean.
There are two reasons this video is helpful:
- We talk about why telling “incomplete” stories is so successful when Asking your donors for gifts
- I share how to tell an incomplete story, with a specific example. Chris posted the video just yesterday morning, and he’s already getting feedback on how helpful the example is.
Watch the video! It’s 11 minutes long, but it goes fast. And the ideas I share will jumpstart your fundraising this fall!
One final thing to mention: I’ll be speaking at the Nonprofit Storytelling Conference this fall in San Diego (November 2-4). And you can save $400 if you take advantage of the Early Bird special until tomorrow, September 15th.
