Ethical Storytelling: Moving Donors from Saviorism to Solidarity
We know that storytelling is essential to effective fundraising, but what is often left out of the conversation is how to tell stories—especially about the people we serve—ethically.
Stories about people are never just content, they are pieces of human lives! The people you serve are the heroes of their own stories and have their own voices, experiences, and opinions to share. It is essential that nonprofits dedicate adequate time and resources to ethical storytelling and partner with story subjects throughout the process.
During this session with Fee Freeman, you will learn the foundations of ethical, strengths-based storytelling as well as practical strategies for collecting uplifting, outcome-oriented stories that uphold the dignity of your clients, celebrate their strength, and move donors to action!
This session will help your nonprofit move away from “pulling on donor heartstrings” and towards storytelling that helps your donors to see themselves in the people their donations support.
