Charities can change the world through storytelling. But to do that, their stories need to stand out and be noticed.
The Storymakers campaign 2014 empowers nonprofits, libraries, and charities with the tools and training to tell their stories, get noticed, and make an impact.
Storymakers culminates in a challenge. Starting August 26th – September 26th, participants can submit any of the following digital stories to be in the running for big cash prizes:
- a two minute video;
- a short-form Vine or Instagram video; or
- a five-picture Flickr slideshow
- August 27th – Storymakers Super-Short Videos: Vine, Instagram, and More! – 8/27
- September 10th – Get Your Story Noticed (sign-up link coming soon!)
Winners will be announced at a gala event on October 29th.

Charities believe corporate fundraising is a key growth area. But recent research by the IoF has revealed that just 7% of charities with a corporate fundraising programme feel that it is “fully developed”.
