Moceanic Fundraising Arts And Culture

Fundraising For Arts and Culture

This 60-minute workshop is for you if you connect with donors who are passionate about arts and culture — or any cause where you aren’t “rescuing” someone from a bad situation.

In this workshop, you’ll discover:

  • The fundraising “rule” that you MUST break — at least some of the time
  • The five key motivations of arts and culture donors
  • Three must-do ways to really connect with donors

Moceanic Storytelling Course

Your Blueprint for Donor-Focused, High-Revenue Fundraising Storytelling

Find and tell the right stories to inspire your donors to give again and again. In this nonprofit storytelling course taught by expert Jeff Brooks, you’ll discover how to spot a great story — and find the workarounds when you don’t have one. You’ll know how to get the right information even when it’s hard to find. Plus, in this fundraising training, you’ll learn the writing tips that bring your stories to life.

Stories have incredible power to move people to action. But not every story does the job.

Understanding the ins and outs of fundraising stories will give your entire nonprofit communications a boost.

In this fundraising storytelling course, you’ll discover Jeff Brooks’ eye-opening secrets for telling stories that reach donors’ hearts and minds, inspiring them to care and motivating them to give. Even if you think you have no stories to tell, you’ll discover how to encourage the miracle of charitable giving.

Whether you are new to fundraising, an experienced writer, or in charge of approving fundraising writing, this course will equip you to make the right decisions.

Four example-packed modules will show you how to find the right story that moves donors’ hearts and minds and inspires them to give:

  1. What is a Story?
  2. The Donor’s Story
  3. Powerful Copywriting that Makes your Stories Sing
  4. Getting the Story

PLUS — Bonuses, extras, and nonprofit storytelling examples that will help you put your knowledge to work right away finding and telling those winning stories.
