We know that your organization has a powerful story and is creating an incredible impact. Whenever we have a chance to connect with an organization, we are so inspired by all the work taking place. But, sharing your why beyond a phone call or in-person conversation doesn’t happen as often as it should. 

 

We think your why needs to be unignorable. It needs to be clear, concise, and engaging. It needs to share a story: a personal story with real people, talking about a real difference and tangible impact that is being made. And it also needs to tell why the work matters for more than one person. Think about the overall impact and difference that is made, how the work is impacting a community and fulfilling a need. It should share your vision and explain why support is critical for your organization. 

 

This is the number one reason people support a cause they care about. However, we find, it’s also the one thing most forgotten about when planning and sharing fundraising events. Don’t wait until your event to share stories of impact. Start now and build interest and excitement to encourage people to donate and attend.
