Mission Storytelling

Donors make decisions to give based upon emotion even more than fact. Therefore, organizations must know how to convey the human impact of their work to create a resonant case for support. Stories provide a powerful and emotional experience of your healing mission in action, and Accordant Philanthropy can show you how to craft high-impact mission stories based on best practices and research from a variety of fields including psychology and behavioral economics.

Storytelling is an ideal role for organizational advocates. Accordant Philanthropy trains development professionals, board members, physicians, executives and other advocates in crafting and effectively telling better mission stories to illuminate the healthcare organization’s case for support, to touch people with a mission experience, to bind them to the organization and to move them to action.
