How does your nonprofit tell its story?

August 16, 2013

Your story is the most powerful method you have for demonstrating the work and worth of your nonprofit. Why should donors and volunteers care about your organization? We want to know! 

A picture is worth a thousand words, especially for nonprofit organizations who are trying to communicate their impact. Storytelling isn’t just a trending topic—it’s fundamentally important to communicate impact to engage your audience to action—be it sharing, donating, volunteering or attending.

“As a nonprofit, you’ve got plenty of stories to tell—there’s the story of the work you do, the story of the commu­nity you serve, and the story of the people you involve at all levels.”
—Marc Schultz, NOW contributing editor 

How does your nonprofit tell its story? At GCN, we’re kicking off our second annual Georgia Gives Day campaign, and we want to know how nonprofits in Georgia visually communicate their impact. In just one picture, we want to see your impact. Send us one photo that visually expresses your nonprofit’s greatest impact using hashtag #GaGivesImpact on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. Be sure to include your organization's name if sending from a personal account.  Your photo could be featured in the fall issue of Georgia Nonprofit NOW magazine or on the Georgia Gives Day website!

Have any questions?  Leave them in the comments, and we will respond!
