Presented by Dr. Jacob Burgoon, Director of Nonprofit and Government Operations, MetriKs Amérique

Dr. Jacob BurgoonStorytelling is as old as humankind. It’s how we communicate the things that are most important to us—our ambitions, our problems, our solutions. Whether visual, narrative, or oral, stories tell us where we’ve been, where we are, and where we want to go. During this presentation, Dr. Jacob Burgoon will show you how to meaningfully use data to tell your organization’s story in memorable and compelling ways.

You will learn why visualizing your data is important, and how to break free from default Excel graphs to create more engaging data visualizations. You will also learn how to effectively integrate the “hard” data required by some funders with the emotional anecdotes desired by others. Lastly, you’ll see various ways to deliver these visualizations (e.g., infographics, data dashboards), and learn how to ensure your story is grounded in the logic of your programming.

Apply for the Chamberlain Scholarship

AFPNWO is committed to advancing the careers of fundraisers in northwest Ohio and southeast Michigan. To that end, the Chapter offers the Chamberlain Scholarship, which provides a free registration to the AFP International Conference (actually, you pay $10) and $500 towards travel expenses (a $1,190 value).

This year's scholarship will be for the 2020 AFP International conference, which will be held in Baltimore, MD, March 29-31. Click here for more info about the conference.

Nate ReidNate Reid, Development Manager for Habitat for Humanity Maumee Valley, was the 2019 Chamberlain Scholar and attended the conference in San Antonio, TX, earlier this year. He found the experience invaluable:

I am newer to professional fundraising still, having just completed my first year on April 2, 2019, so the conference helped me become aware of nuances and next steps that I didn't know I didn't know. For example, the things to make sure to prepare if/when a potential grant maker plans to visit your organization. The learning session pointed out the importance of doing one's homework on who the funders are, some of their interests, funding priorities, etc., and also determining who will say what, when, to whom in order to make the right impression and guide the discussion in the best ways to achieve the best outcomes.

His advice:

If you are thinking about applying for a scholarship, Chamberlain or membership, just apply. It doesn't hurt, and you run the chance of gaining access to world class training you wouldn't have been able to benefit from without a significant expense to you or your organization.
