I read the New York Times obituaries. They are wonderful little stories of people’s lives, generally famous people. Luckily for them, they had the opportunity to tell their story before they died. Not to be morbid, but I want you to do that to!
You have a wonderful, unique story. Happily for the universe you have chosen to work with a nonprofit organization. We all benefit because you, and other Nonprofit Champions, devote your energy and talent to bettering the world.
Make your stories memorable and inspirational. A memorable story alters the listener’s perspective and is retold often. An inspirational story is emotional and moves the listener to take action.
These are just the stories you need to build your network of friends and donors. Your Million Dollar Story starts with you crafting your story. It’s first and it’s the most important. Your story has the power to move people to action.

Merle Benny is the Founder of Nonprofit Champion, a resource for fast track nonprofit leaders and the creator of Your Million Dollar Story. While building a successful career at Mc-Graw Hill and AIG, Merle was on a personal quest to understand how to help nonprofits grow and prosper. As a volunteer she learned to market and fundraise, raising millions for organizations. Partnering with Joe Landi, a branding expert and Duncan Pettigrew, a videographer, they created a system for all nonprofits to grow and raise more money. The result is Your Million Dollar Story.
