FULLY FUNDED STORIES
A New Approach For Non-Profits To Share Their Mission & Exceed Fundraising Goals
Increase the impact of your fundraising event through live storytelling performances.
Live storytelling enhances the impact of your fundraising events by offering a new way to let donors emotionally connect to the mission of your organization, inspiring them to deepen their support and increase giving.
I take interviews from the real people who benefit from your organization's services and transform them into stories to be performed live during fundraising events. I can consult and direct the performers or simply provide the script. Not only is this a fresh way to reinforce your mission statement, it also offers celebrities and influencers a tangible opportunity to contribute to causes that matter to them by performing one of the pieces at your event.
Organizations I have worked with report an increase in giving at live (and virtual) events.
I had the wonderful pleasure of working with Chris for our annual Gala event for the American Red Cross. Chris took stories that were on paper and made them pop for the stage. He has the innate ability to make things sound fresh and really create a story world that connects with the audience, bringing in newfound interest to the mission of the American Red Cross. Without Chris adapting these stories for various mediums, I truly don't believe we would have seen the success we did from donations and improved interest around the Red Cross and what we do.
