STORYTELLING TRAINING FOR NONPROFITS
See you in 2021
Stories have the power to inform and inspire, excite and empower. And while the world may look and feel dramatically different, the need to share your organization’s story is as important as ever (if not more so). That’s why the John R. Oishei Foundation and the Health Foundation for Western and Central New York are thrilled to present StoryGrowing WNY.
