Storytelling Prompts


Tell your friends and family members about the important work we do and ask them to join us in helping to make a difference in our community. Here are a few prompts to help you create a personal story about why your supporters should donate to Teton Valley Food Pantry during IDAHO GIVES:

​1 |  How did you hear about our organization?

2 |  What made you decide to first engage with Teton Valley Food Pantry?

3 |  Do you know someone who is personally affected by our mission and services?

4 |  What’s your favorite thing about our organization?

5 |  Can you describe a specific moment or experience that stands out to you as particularly meaningful or impactful

6 |  What’s one thing you wish others knew about our organization?


Here are a few tips and tricks for more effective fundraising:

1 |  Use stories. Create a personal connection with your network by sharing your reason for fundraising. An emotional appeal can help you raise even more money and help people understand why this cause is so close to your heart.

2 |  Provide updates on your progress. When you're close to reaching a fundraising goal or when you've reached a fundraising goal, share that with your network. People who have already donated to your campaign will love to see how they've helped make a difference, and a message asking for support to reach your goals will motivate people to donate.

3 |  Always share your gratitude. A heartfelt "thank you" is a must for anyone who has donated to your fundraiser. Acknowledge your donors and express how much their support means to you. Share with them how they've positively impacted Teton Valley. 


Remember to link to your personal fundraising page on social media and emails.


Happy fundraising!
