Over the past few years we’ve heard from thousands who use Haiku Deck in their nonprofit organization to create great presentations for engaging donors, rallying volunteers, training teams, and promoting their mission. Here are eight ways we’ve seen Haiku Deck help grow nonprofits around the world.
1. Personalize Your Mission:
Every nonprofit is inspired by a story. Many can be quite powerful, such as the story that inspired alexashope.org. In the presentation below, they use personal stories and personal examples to bring their mission to life.

Images help potential donors visualize impact, as most people remember an average of 10% of what they read, and 65% of the visuals they see. Using powerful images is one way to make a strong impression that drives to action.
