Get Grants Online Storytelling for Fundraising Training Course is designed to support fundraisers to improve their fundraising confidence and success through effective use of storytelling.
Telling stories is a powerful tool that is too often overlooked. Stories are used to engage, inform, persuade, and create connections between people. As a fundraiser, storytelling is a valuable skill that can be used to influence your potential supporters and maximise on your fundraising efforts.
Storytelling skills bring to life your fundraising activities across the communications of your organisation. In this course, you will develop a key skill that will benefit the success of grant fundraising, corporate partnerships, crowdfunding, major donors, legacies, and many more!
What to expect:
Led by a Get Grants Funding Expert, the course will support you to effectively tell the story of your organisations, explain your need and tie it to your ask and outcomes, develop and use case studies, and use stories in your evaluation. You will develop your understanding and knowledge of fundraising, learn about practical processes, and learn skills you can put into practice.
During this online training course, you will:
- Explore the ‘importance of why’ and getting down to the heart of the issue you are talking about.
