Westlake Porter Public Library, in collaboration with Candid, will explore creative approaches for organizations to make connections and raise funds in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Strategic storytelling is the most powerful tool an organization can use to connect with potential funders and inspire philanthropic giving. The ability to tell a unique, emotional story in order to stand out from the crowd has become critical to meeting fundraising goals during the coronavirus crisis.

Join our panelists for a conversation about building compelling stories that create a sense of urgency and promote understanding of the challenges that organizations face in serving their communities during the COVID-19 era. Learn how to move from traditional storytelling methods to digital engagement, cultivating advocacy and fostering relationships with donors and grantmakers.
