In this interactive nonprofit webinar we will teach you how to use storytelling in grants in numerous ways beyond a simple client quote. We will walk you step by step through multiple examples with different storytelling approaches for you to utilize in your own grant applications.

 What You Will Learn from this Live Nonprofit Webinar

  • How to use engaging stories in foundation grant applications;

  • How to use more than just statistics to tell your story;

  • How to balance client and organizational stories with statistics in your story;

  • How to effectively integrate stories in government grant applications;

  • How to use personas in telling stories in government grant applications; and

  • How to ensure that your story is consistent across all grant application elements and attachments.

Based on your experience as a grant professional so far, you have learned that storytelling is not only key to successful fundraising efforts with individual donors but is also a key element for successful grant writing.  

Feeling comfortable with the wide range of storytelling approaches and styles that individual grant professionals have adopted and finding the right voice for YOUR organization and YOU as the grant professional takes time and effort.

In this live, nonprofit webinar, we will look at numerous examples of successful storytelling in grants and walk through specific examples where the storytelling could be improved. These case studies will serve as a hands-on learning experience to inspire a variety of approaches to gather and tell the story of your organization to different grantmakers.

As a result of this session, you will have a wide range of effective storytelling ideas and approaches to try in your own grant application work with your organization.
