Tell Stories that Raise Money
Put an End to Bland, Uninspiring Donor Communications!

Here's the problem.

If your messages don’t grab attention or spark emotion, donors just tune out. That means fewer donations. To really connect with donors, your messages need to be compelling and heartfelt. Without that, it’s tough for your nonprofit to raise the money it needs. Let's fix that.

Get the storytelling strategies the world’s top nonprofits use to raise revenue, captivate communities, and deepen donor relationships.

Learn new ways to create powerful donor messages at this year’s conference. 

New New & New

New Location.

New kinds of sessions. 

New . . .

I love new experiences. I hope you do too, because . . .

This year, the Nonprofit Storytelling Conference is at the Tamaya Resort in New Mexico. The hotel is a hidden gem nestled perfectly between Albuquerque and Santa Fe.

🌶️ 🌶️ 🌶️

The Tamaya Resort is an intimate venue. 

Being a smaller resort means a more personalized experience. You’ll form deep, meaningful connections with both speakers and fellow attendees like never before. But here’s the kicker —

Because this hotel holds fewer people, there are fewer tickets available. And tickets are flying off the shelves faster than you can say “enchiladas.”

But I’m getting ahead of myself. 

Storytelling is the Bridge to Your Donors' Hearts

Let’s cut to the chase: 

Storytelling is a superpower (a superpower you can easily learn).

Stories connect your nonprofit to your donors like nothing else can. Great stories inspire action. They tap into donors’ values. They create real human connections. 

Transform your fundraising and donor communications. Learn to harness the power of storytelling at this year’s conference.  

Build your own collection of powerful storytelling skills

These new storytelling skills will make you more engaging, magnetic, and influential. Not just to donors, but to everyone around you – including your family and friends.

You’ll learn the same storytelling techniques used by the world’s most influential people and best communicators. These techniques bridge the gap between the storyteller and the audience.

Few people know these skills. Once you learn them, you’ll be able to:

  • Build Stronger Donor Relationships
  • Inspire Greater Giving
  • Captivate Any Audience
  • Enhance Your Career
  • Increase Your Influence
  • Boost Your Confidence
  • Leave a Lasting Impact
  • Share Your Vision
  • Foster Empathy

And it gets even better.

Get Personalized Help Like Never Before

If you’re like me, learning a new skill comes with a lot of questions. 

Having an expert to answer those questions is priceless. I always feel more confident when someone helps me apply what I’m learning. That’s why this year’s conference offers more personalized attention than ever before. Here’s what we’ve done.

We’ve added two new types of sessions.

You'll get personalized attention in each type of session.

First, we have “Intensives” – 2.5-hour deep dives into specific subjects. These sessions will radically improve how you raise money. You can choose from four different topics, and you can attend all four if you like:

  1. Events
  2. Appeals
  3. Major Donors
  4. Creative Campaigns

Second, we have “Implementation Workshops.” These are 60-minute sessions with small groups. You’ll learn storytelling and fundraising tactics and then apply them to your situation with help from an expert. And then, separate from the workshops, we also have the main stage sessions. 

Mind-Bending Ideas

Here’s where it gets really interesting.

The Main Stage sessions are packed with ideas that will make you say, "Wow! I've never thought of that before." These aren’t your typical sessions. We’re talking about sessions filled with groundbreaking strategies and mind-bending concepts that will revolutionize your fundraising and donor communications.

Get ready for the kind of "aha" moments that will change everything.

You won’t want to miss these sessions – they’re designed to transform the way you connect with donors and elevate your entire approach. Here are some of the subjects these sessions will cover:

  • Writing Your Fundraising Story
  • Speaking Your Fundraising Story
  • Emotionally Engaging Your Donors
  • How to Use the Right Words to Inspire People
  • Delivering Your Story with Power and Impact
  • Getting to Know Your Donor’s Story
  • How to Attract New Supports with Your Stories

Craft Stories That Make Donors Say “Yes!” 

Picture this:

. . . Your donors hanging on every word, captivated by your story.

At this year’s conference, you’ll learn how to do just that. We’re talking about crafting narratives that don’t just inform – they move people to action.

You’ll discover the secrets to writing and speaking your fundraising story with raw power and deep emotion. Connect with your donors on a level you never thought possible. Learn the exact words that inspire and engage. And discover the kinds of stories that attract new supporters.

Get ready to take your fundraising to a whole new level and make your donors say, “Yes!” without hesitation.

Whether you struggle with finding stories or have a whole “story bank” at your fingertips, you’re going to become a master storyteller at this year’s conference. But that’s not all.

You’ll Have Fun 

There’s so much fun and relaxation waiting for you at the Tamaya Resort. Plus, explore what’s fun and interesting in Albuquerque and Santa Fe. 

Here’s what you can expect:

Prime Location:

Imagine starting your day with the sun rising over the majestic Sandia Mountains and ending it with a tranquil sunset by the Rio Grande. That’s the daily backdrop at Tamaya. But it gets better.

Between Albuquerque and Santa Fe:

You’re smack dab in the middle of two of the Southwest’s most vibrant cities. Whether you’re into shopping for unique Southwestern art, soaking up live music, or exploring historic plazas, there’s something for everyone. Albuquerque’s Old Town and Santa Fe’s historic plaza are must-sees.

Foodie Heaven:

Ever tried green chile stew? How about enchiladas with a kick? The culinary scene here in New Mexico is out of this world. From authentic New Mexican eats to delicious comfort food, your taste buds are in for a treat.

Jaw-Dropping Landscapes:

We’re talking vast deserts, towering mountains, and the endless skies of the Southwest. Hiking, biking, hot air ballooning – you name it, it’s all right here. 

Cultural Riches: 
Dive into a cultural melting pot. Native American, Hispanic, and Anglo influences blend into a vibrant tapestry of art, history, and tradition. Museums, galleries, historic sites – there’s no end to what you can discover.
