Have you ever walked out of a movie theatre after watching a superhero film feeling like you could take over the world? (I must confess, I walked a little taller after watching Wonder Woman.)
Or did you ever feel a tightening in your throat after hearing someone share their story of overcoming incredible odds? I found Yeonmi Park’s speech about her life in North Korea and her call for action against human rights violators particularly moving.
Strong storytelling elicits a guttural reaction. Why?
Experiencing a well-told story moves humans in ways that a set of facts never will. That’s why storytelling is the heartbeat of fundraising.
But what is the oft-overlooked, challenging step that is key to telling the stories of your organization in a powerful way? Finding the right stories in the first place.
Story gathering is a critical component of effective storytelling. If you don’t find the right stories to tell, then your supporters will never hear them and be compelled to act as a result.
How do you find the right stories and tell them in such a way that inspires more action and greater generosity?
