Tips: Writing a Great Campaign Story

“I have so much I need to say about my campaign, and I’m having a tough time trying to get it all across.”

We completely understand! Here are some tips to help you tell your story so you can be on your way to a successful campaign.

How to best tell your story:

  • Break it up. Paragraphs and bullet points work wonders when trying to make something easier to read and understand.
  • Bold, Underline, Italicize when you're trying to drive your most important points home. 
  • Tell it from the heart.  Be honest and direct with your supporters.
  • Post pictures and videos. Images help your supporters feel connected to your campaign.

Don’t forget to include these important points:

  • Get to the “WHY.” Let your friends and family know why this cause is so important to you.
  • Explain exactly how the money it will be spent and how it will help you.
  • Show appreciation. Remember to thank your friends and family for taking the time to read your campaign and support your cause.
  • Encourage questions. Let your donors know that you’re happy to answer any questions they might have.
