If not, here is a link to the terrific infographic.

From the post:
The graphic, titled “What Does Your Gift Support?,” spells out exactly what contributions pay for, up and down the financial scale, from the $50 it takes to transport a guest artist from San Francisco to the symphony hall to the $20,000 it takes to pay for one rehearsal.

I love using images in nonprofit fundraising. Infographics are an effective and fun way to use images to easily convey gift impact.

The Symphony image helped them meet their fundraising target during their spring campaign and is being repurposed to help them meet or exceed their fall campaign goals.

I encourage, no, I URGE you to find a fun way to share YOUR money story.
