How would you feel if your donors saw that your nonprofit didn’t do everything perfectly? Would that scare you?

What if you could take that fear and turn it into a superpower instead? By embracing the imperfections in how social good comes alive in our communities, fundraising can become more authentic, easier, and collaborative. 

In this session, you’ll learn:

  • Topics you never thought you could discuss with donors, but should
  • Issues that are caused by keeping donors at arm’s length from the truth
  • Strategies to shift donors’ understanding of your work and their role in it
  • Specific phrases and framing to move donors towards trust and mission-based funding

This session, which is part of our storytelling series, is a must-watch for any fundraiser looking to change the ways our sector thinks about the way raising money works.
