StoryGrowing Logo Color Adjusted - No WNY

The Health Foundation for Western and Central New York and The John R. Oishei Foundation are thrilled to announce the third edition of StoryGrowing WNY – a capacity-building program designed to help nonprofits find their voice and share their stories.

WNY nonprofit organizations are invited to the StoryGrowing WNY Kickoff Workshop, featuring author and speaker Andy Goodman of The Goodman Center. His workshop, “Leading with Stories,” focuses on how community organizations can lead, persuade and motivate by sharing their values and beliefs – and how stories can help any organization move closer to its vision. This is a new program, so you’re encouraged to attend even if you joined us or applied in previous years.
