Social Justice Fund’s J.A. Morton-Jones held an informational workshop for Deuces Live affiliate members on June 20, 2019, to discuss Pinellas Community Foundation’s available grants and the Social Justice Fund services for small nonprofits.
Learning To Tell Your Story
During the workshop, Jones shared information on free advertising through platforms Google My Business and Yelp. Members were advised to visit and update the Guidestar information, and together shared tips on developing impactful stories about their work.
Da’juh Sawyer and Dontreal Fletcher practiced giving their short elevator pitch and longer impact statements before audiences. By sharing their stories among the group, participants were able to identify the key information necessary to communicate each organization’s story, impact, and programming to funders.
