  • 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm Crafting a Transformational Brand Story | More

    Every time you communicate with your supporters, you are telling them a story about your organization. The question is… what story are you telling? Is it clear and compelling, or does it leave people confused and uninspired?

    In this session, Rod Arnold, strategy and marketing lead at Leading Good and CMO of Soles4Souls, explores how the key ingredients of great storytelling can be applied to your nonprofit, and how you can craft a powerful brand story to transform your communications.

  • 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm Lunch & Panel Discussion | More

During lunch, we will host a panel discussion diving into the biggest challenges facing nonprofit leadership today, and our panelists will offer their insights on the solutions you can implement into your organization’s practice.

    The panel discussion will be led by Nhu Te, Editor-in-Chief of NonProfit PRO, and Mark Becker, founding partner, Cathexis Partners.

  • 8:00 am - 8:45 am Using Tech to Improve the Donor Experience | More

    These days, it’s important for nonprofits to ensure that each donor experience with the organization is a positive one.

She also grew the organization’s U.S. digital revenue practice into a steady and reliable funding source. Sue is obsessed with increasing revenue for organizations and holds a master’s degree from Johns Hopkins University.  She lives in Massachusetts with her husband, Jeremy, and rescued dog, Marcus the Rottweiler.

  • 8:45 am - 9:15 am The Generation of Millennials | More

    The generation of Millennials is passionately invested in the causes they care about. They have the potential to influence their whole community to give to the nonprofits they believe in—they are loyal supporters.

     

    In this session, Karen Goldfeder and Meredith Ferguson of DoSomething.org will share how your nonprofit can capitalize on this generation of donors and how it can enhance donor loyalty and engagement.

  • 9:15 am - 9:45 am How to Deepen Donor Engagement through Digital Storytelling | More

    The power of storytelling is undeniable and has not changed since humans began to communicate. However, the landscape in which to tell and to share stories certainly has.

    Digital technologies have fundamentally changed the way people discover, engage and share information about the causes they care about. Social media platforms and innovative digital tools are disrupting traditional fundraising, with the potential to bring donors more deeply inside the work of organizations.

    In this session, author and global authority on nonprofit digital storytelling Julia Campbell will walk you through the modern day secrets to nonprofit storytelling success in the digital age, based on her bestselling book for nonprofits.

    Learning objectives:

    • – How to employ Julia’s three-part digital storytelling framework to turn donors from passive to passionate.
    • – How to create a system to collect and share the best stories about your work that will energize and inspire your donors.
    • – How to use stories to address myths and misconceptions about your work and to truly express your impact.
    • – Free and low-cost tools you can use to enhance your digital storytelling on a shoestring budget.
    • – Real-world examples and case studies from small and mid-size nonprofits.

    Participants will also get access to the Storytelling in the Digital Age Workbook, to begin collecting, crafting, and sharing stories for their organizations on digital channels.
