Resources from Empathy to Action – Storytelling in Philanthropy

Publication date: 
August, 2015

How many of us have been ignited, inspired and shaken out of our own complacency by powerful stories?  Would you like to tell stories that make people smile, weep, deepen partnerships and influence key audiences? 

San Francisco Bay Area funders gathered for this highly interactive session, facilitated by experienced storyteller and writer Suzanne Skees of the Skees Family Foundation. In this workshop, funders learned the process, challenges, and inspirations underlying storytelling, develop how to tell the story of your foundation, and start the draft of your story.

This program was hosted by Exponent Philanthropy’s San Francisco Bay Area Local Engagement Group.
