Nonprofits, no matter their size or mission, are working to change hearts and minds around important issues every single day.

Whether you are trying to get new members for your performing arts center, to entice people to adopt dogs and cats, or to create advocacy actions around climate change – you are in the business of persuasion.

To persuade is “to move by argument, entreaty, or expostulation to a belief, position, or course of action.” 

In his writings on how to become a great public speaker, the Greek philosopher Aristotle (384-322 B.C.) described three “modes of persuasion”. 

These modes – Ethos, Pathos, and Logos –  are the essential elements required to convince your audience of your viewpoint. 

In order to collect, craft, and share stories that will move people from passive to passionate, let’s explore how Aristotle’s 3 modes of persuasion can be used to improve our nonprofit storytelling.
