Bringing your Community Foundation Story to Life

Leave blank unless you have been provided a code.

Whether your foundation just topped $1 million or $1 billion in assets, you probably experience the same challenge when it comes to communications: Not enough capacity. Sometimes you just can't do it all. This webinar will feature essential storytelling tips, highlight creative ways to repurpose your existing work and show you how to efficiently use downtime to stock a pantry full of useful ingredients to tell the right story when you're crunched for time. And for those times you have some financial flexibility, we'll talk about how to find the right consultant to help you finally move that back-burner project out onto the table.
