Believe it or not, there's a right way to tell a fundraising story. And by fundraising story, I mean a story that you're using to raise money for your non-profit. A fundraising story needs the right story structure to connect with the audience, demonstrate need, and invite the audience to get involved by making a donation. Individual donors can give with shocking levels of generosity when they’re deeply moved by stories. That’s just what your organization needs in order to grow!But chances are, you didn’t get your job because you’re already a storytelling expert. In fact, you may struggle to find stories you think your donors would find interesting. You might not be at all confident that you can write them well. The good news? You can change all that.My guest this week is Vanessa Chase Lockshin, a consultant specializing in non-profit storytelling, fundraising and communications, author of The Storytelling Non-Profit: A practical guide to telling stories that raise money and awareness, and the creator of immersive online training programs for non-profit professionals.

Today is #GivingTuesday! GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past ten years, this idea has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity year-round.In 2021, an estimated $2.7 Billion were donated in twenty-four hours in the U.S. alone, a 9% increase over the prior year and a 37% increase from pre-pandemic levels. 84% of those aware report that GivingTuesday inspired them to be more giving. A 2019 Horizon Media study reported that 52% said that they want to donate on this day because it allows them to be a part of a bigger group of people doing good.As they write on their website, "GivingTuesday is an opportunity for people around the world to use their individual power of generosity to remain connected and support their communities. It’s not just one day – this is a global social movement that’s working every day to fuel more generosity in service to building a more just and equitable world."In this episode, I go over several ways to promote your Giving Tuesday campaign and drive more donations. Resources mentioned:The Night Ministry's "What Is Home?"

In the report The Lived Experience of Fundraisers of Color produced by Cause Effective, two-thirds of the respondents mentioned facing obstacles in their development careers due to their race. More than half of those surveyed acknowledged they might be reluctant to recommend that people of color they know enter into the fundraising profession, “because fundraising involves external relationships where bias might be present” and “fundraising reflects and magnifies the racial hierarchies of our culture.”On this episode of Nonprofit Nation, I sit down with Kia Croom, a fund development executive with 20 years of experience. Kia launched the Black Fundraisers’ podcast to celebrate, inspire and equip Black fund development professionals to excel and positively impact Black communities. Some of my favorite episodes have featured Johnnetta Cole, the first Black woman president of Spelman College and later Bennett College, social entrepreneur Trabian Shorters, and fundraising executive Dianna Campbell.Kia also spearheads an initiative called Fundraising in Black -  a series of fundraising capacity-building courses targeted to Black and Brown fundraising professionals.  Connect with Kia: Website:  www.kiacroom.comInstagram:  @kiacroomTwitter: @iamkiacroomLinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/kiacroom/ Email: croomkia@gmail.com About Julia Campbell, the host of the Nonprofit Nation podcast:Named as a top thought leader by Forbes and BizTech Magazine, Julia Campbell (she/hers) is an author, coach, and speaker on a mission to make the digital world a better place.She wrote her book, Storytelling in the Digital Age: A Guide for Nonprofits, as a roadmap for social change agents who want to build movements using engaging digital storytelling techniques.

When it comes to nonprofit grant writing, there’s not a formulaic approach or “one-size-fits-all”. Rather, you need to customize your approach for each funder you pursue. Rachel Waterman is here to help! Rachel is the CEO and Founder of GDS Grants. She is a GPA approved trainer and presenter on various topics related to grant writing, research & management, but her favorite "things" are data collection/outcome measures and systems for scale and efficiency.
