South Dakota State Arts Conference: Advanced Storytelling: Sharing Our Money Story
Thursday, October 29 , 9:00 am CDT - 10:30 pm CDT
Do you, your staff, and board members feel uncomfortable talking about money?
It’s much easier to talk about your amazing work, right? But that’s just one component of successful fundraising communication.
Letting your supporters know the costs of putting on a performance, covering the cost of rehearsals or providing education programs for the community is important to share. AND, talking about the money you need can feel dry and uninspiring — but when your money story is combined with a story about one person – people listen. And often, they give more AND stay giving longer.
You’ll learn how to reduce “talking about money” discomfort and how to powerfully include your money story in any and all fundraising communication.
- Why we shy away from talking about money and what to do about it
- What is a money story
