  4. Why a Story? • All decisions are emotion based and

    logic supported. It’s your point of connection with your staff, your board, your patrons, your volunteers and the public at large. • Involve staff and your board in strategy sessions about your why. • Once you have your WHY then communicate it! Give your staff context for communicating it! Give opportunities to your Board members to articulate their STORY and how it links to your organization’s WHY. • Your entire team acts as megaphones on their personal outlets. • By taking the time to provide additional training, you can ensure the messages being shared conform to your organization’s STORY. • Having an all staff retreat or immersion is a great way to accomplish this!
  5. MEDIA

  6. Know Your Mediums Whether it’s print, radio, television or social

    media – each have unique opportunities for getting your nonprofit message out to broad and targeted audience.
  7. Print • Know your resources. • Is your story local,

    regional, national? • Prepare a compelling Press Release. • Meet with the Editorial Board. • Inquire about the best person to pitch story ideas to – social, straight news, sports, etc.
  8. Press Kits • If you are hosting a press coverage

    event, take the time to prepare a fact sheet for the reporter by creating a press kit. • Don’t say you have written much of the story for the reporter – that will not be received well. • Provide important factual information. It will go a long way to building the story. • Include your press release, information about your organization, some compelling stories and answers to FAQ.
  9. Media Day For traditional mediums, consider hosting a Media Day

    where you provide tours of your facilities, opportunities for the media to hear firsthand from patrons, pets and/or people you serve.
  10. Radio •PSAs • Guest Speaker Opportunities • Web Based Broadcasts

  11. Television • Identify the compelling story • Help with appropriate

    “B Roll” footage • Be prepared with live action opportunities that demonstrate the story of your organization • Identify in advance good “on camera” resources to tell your story.
  12. Reporters’ “Go To” Person • Don’t be fearful of reporters.

    • Become a reporters’ best “go to” person for your field. • In other words, when there is a question that is germane to the nonprofit arena, be the person they reach out to first as a trusted source.
  13. Quantify your IMPACT based on your why

  18. Sponsorship Engagement Tactics •Sponsorship is serious business—but it doesn’t have

    to be BORING! •Start a friendly competition between your sponsors (think Peer to Peer) •Involve your sponsors in planning for next year’s event. Examples include: signature cocktail naming rights, photo booth prop sponsor, swag bag sponsor etc.
  19. Marketing Your Campaign to Sponsors • Turn to social media—embrace

    the different platforms to get your message front and center! • Develop a marketing plan and get each internal department on board (hopefully you already have this foundation) Overlay it with a press release calendar for major announcements and fundraising events---your calendar will end up like an onion—the more layers the better! • Research your target sponsor audience (this is not your other nonprofit friends). Look at the population you serve, where you are located, and the donors that you want to attract to your organization. • Make sure your messaging is making an impact—How can “the reader/viewer” benefit from the information being shared? What’s the “hook”?
