Story Telling for Charities is extremely important. Showing the impact and outcomes of what you do is vital if you are completing funding bids. We can help share what you do by highlighting key areas for campaigns. In addition we can offer additional help in spreading your message via online platforms.
Telling your story after you have received funding is also an extremely important part of your continuing journey. Show your funders and the public the impact that their investment has had on your community or cause.
If you are not quite ready to apply for funding, we can help you build a catalogue of information to show the importance of your work.
Worcester Community Trust
The Worcester Community Trust 2018 AGM video was filmed over a period of 12 months. It highlights the essential project work carried out by the charity. It was shown at their AGM to local Councillors, partner agencies, supporters, funders and staff. The video also demonstrates impact of funding when compared to the AGM video from the previous year.
The DAWN Project
The Dawn Project is a part of Worcester Community Trust. It provides support for women suffering from Domestic Abuse. This video was made to raise awareness of the Project, gain support and to support funding bids.
The Building Block, Worcester
The Building Block is a construction skills centre based in Warndon, Worcester and part of Worcester Community Trust.
Volunteers from the centre helped the Fortis Living Community Garden in Chedworth Drive, Worcester. They built walls, paths and a BBQ using skills they had learnt from taking courses!
The Building Block, which opened in 2016, used to rely on posters and word of mouth to sell spaces on their evening courses. Less than 25% of available spaces on courses were sold. Other issues included collecting payments ahead of the course start date.
A Marketing campaign was devised utilising the Google Non Profits program supported by video & social media campaigns and a simple booking system was installed into the website.
This integrated campaign led to the course take up rate increasing to 97.6% where it has remained ever since. When courses become fully booked, people are able to join a waiting list via Mail Chimp allowing them to be notified first when spaces became available.
There are now over 600 people receiving course updates via Mail Chimp. This has led to the situation where places on courses become fully booked within hours of release.
We can help Charities via the Google Non Profits grant and any other digital services which can be utilised to maximum effect and benefit.
