Nonprofit ImpactStory™ Academy – Spring 2024


Our straightforward, uncomplicated, 3-step ImpactStory™ strategy allows nonprofits to be clear about what impact they are working toward, confident in the data being collected (including how to understand it), and how to tell convincing impact stories that move people to action: to give, to volunteer, to change, to expand, to succeed. Having uncomplicated data and narratives at your fingertips not only allows you to control the story, but it’s a goal that’s within reach – even in the complex and always moving real-world of nonprofits.

Join us for an intensive, 9-week, on-line and live Academy where you get all the knowledge needed to build out your nonprofit’s ImpactStory™ Strategy and to evolve it over time to meet your changing needs. Click here for the syllabus.
