Every missional organization needs a strong narrative to engage with volunteers, funders, and stakeholders. Having a well-crafted story means that you can quickly and easily adapt it to new audiences, asks, and formats. Whether you give a 2 min elevator pitch to welcome new volunteers, write a 15-page grant application, or mail an appeal letter, your narrative needs to be compelling and targeted to your audience.
Join us to learn the basics of writing your organization’s story. Bring your current mission statement, website text, and other promotional materials so you can immediately practice adapting your text, and receive feedback.
