Finding donors for your nonprofit can be a daunting task. But using some simple nonprofit story telling techniques can help you find new donors and retain them for years to come.
In this podcast I talk with Sierra Jimenez, Development Director at Southeast Alaska Independent Living (S.A.I.L. ). Sierra built a 500 person donor base, using nonprofit story telling techniques, in just seven years. Donations to S.A.I.L, which started at zero, now bring in over $110K annual.
Sierra shares with us some of the techniques she used to bring in new long-term donors. Here are some of the simplest ways to get started:
- Use Social Media
- Hold events for public relations and awareness raising, not just to raise money.
- Use events to share and show your mission
- Send newsletters
- Easy way to share your story and keeps your organization fresh in people’s minds
