Storyliving: Creating Transformational Donor Engagement Experiences to Inspire Major Gifts

Are you getting so caught up in the details of your nonprofit that you are forgetting to convey the human story behind it? Looking for ways to actively connect your donors with your mission? Engaging stories make your work real for donors, and show them the impact that their gift can have on the lives of others.
Traditional storytelling often puts the donor in the role of the passive listener. Storyliving invites the donor to roll up their sleeves and jump into the story, engaging in your work in a manner that leaves the donor inspired and passionate about giving.

$5.00 AFP Members
$20.00 Non-members

At the end of this session participants will: 

Get an overview of the 7 most common donor personas
Learn from 3 major donor case studies illuminating donor persona cultivation tracks
Receive tools to identify donor persona preferences to accelerate your development cycle
Receive sample discovery questions to use in your major donor cultivation process
Get inspired and be grateful to be a fundraising professional!
