Is it possible to use stories in grant proposals? Why would we want to? One of the most important things a story does is help your organization stand out. Research shows that stories are 22 times more memorable than statistics. Sharing a well-crafted story about someone you serve helps to crystallize the impact of your mission. A story puts a face and voice to your work.
In this interactive webinar, Lori L. Jacobwith will help you identify multiple ways to share a story before sending the grant request, with the request, and after you've received the grant. And yes, we'll talk about ways to include a story in online grant applications. During this webinar you will (1) learn the difference between a story and a report; (2) identify multiple ways to include stories when submitting a grant proposal; and (3) make a mini-plan for keeping the funders updated by sharing story updates. Both new and intermediate grantwriters will benefit from this 90 minute presentation.
