Uncover the source of your winning pitch.

All successful fundraising stories have a source.

A person, event, interaction, catastrophe or epiphany that drives the appeal.

These experiences have an unpremeditated authenticity, but they may be hard to fully uncover and express with the urgency you feel.

At Narativ, we know that we already have all we need to tell that story —we simply haven't dug deep enough to fully uncover its source. 

In the Fundraising Story workshop, we dig for the gold, which gives your story - and your storytelling - power and emotion, history and relatability. We'll build the arc between need and solution so that your fundraising goals and their outcomes are clearly and 
inarguably connected. 

In other words, you will deliver rich information contained in story to both inform and inpsire your donors, which leads to giving.

Praise from Amy Bach, Executive Director, 
Measures for Justice

"Narativ knows storytelling. But they also know how to teach people to tell theirs. Their trainers will find the emotional core, the story within your story, and get you to connect with your audience in a way no one else will. They transformed my pitches into winners and helped me attain my fundraising goals."

Perfect for you if:

• you have a great idea, but it is abstract, and lacks emotional resonance

• you rely on data and analytics, and your presentations can be dry and complex

• you have a solid concept, but funders want to know more about the person who will make things happen

As fundraisers, we seek to find an avenue of connection with potential donors. Ideally, our story will speak for itself.  But often it doesn't land with the emotion and urgency we desire. How do we build a compelling story that travels from need to solution?
