This month’s topic
This month at the vibrant #SM4NP, the digital community will gather to talk storytelling for nonprofits. In their communications, nonprofits focus too much on how they do things, their theory of change and what actions they take to accomplish their mission but far less about how they've made a change or accomplished the outcome like fed the hungry, clothed the poor, passed laws to prevent animal cruelty and saved thousands of chickens or provided dignity to homeless through baths and haircuts.
Often times because they think of the nonprofit as the hero (protagonist) of the story and not the constituents they serve. Through effective storytelling, nonprofits can lift the causes and constituents they serve. One of our featured partners of the chat is Hatch for Good, which supports storytelling for impact with a suite of tools. Join us on Friday, July 10th at 1-2 pm EST.
