Everyone loves a good story. That’s why stories are so effective for engaging an audience and inspiring action. Sometimes, nonprofit leaders are challenged when telling their story of “why” they serve. In this workshop, you will learn to refine your story and storytelling skills in an authentic, effective, and compelling way.

When people feel emotionally connected to a cause, they are more likely to support it. Join us for this one-of-a-kind opportunity to learn from one of the best in our field, Andy Goodman, and hone your skills in this fun and engaging workshop.

On February 4, 2024, from 1:00 to 4:00 pm, national speaker and communications expert Andy Goodman will present “Why I Serve: A Storytelling Workshop” for Southern Arizona nonprofit board members, professionals, and volunteers at the Community Foundation Campus.

This workshop, hosted by CFSA’s Center for Healthy Nonprofits, aims to help nonprofit board members, volunteers, and staff become better advocates and ambassadors for the nonprofits they serve.

Registration is $50 per person, and scholarships are available through support from the Connie Hillman Family Foundation.

This event is sponsored by the Center for Healthy Nonprofits in partnership with the Tobin Board Leadership Program at Jewish Philanthropies of Southern Arizona.
