with Jennie about how you can improve your messages to donors



When your organization and your programs are complex it can be hard to have a clear, compelling message that captivates donors. When your staff and board members are not using a unified message your story isn’t told as well as it needs to be.  Jennie Winton, founding partner of Mission Minded, will help you create a new elevator pitch that staff and board will want to use, and that donors will love to hear. Drawing from Mission Minded’s popular Minute Message Model you’ll leave the luncheon with an exciting new message you can try out on colleagues when you get back to the office.
