Award winning St. Louis video production and digital marketing company, StoryTrack is offering non-profit organizations the chance to win a free fundraising video in the StoryTrack Season of Stories Video Contest. 

“Our team’s mantra is grateful, humble and hungry,” says CEO, Lori Dowd.  “And one of the things that we are grateful for is our ability to tell amazing stories through video.  So we want to use that to help organizations who are doing such important work for those who need them.  That’s how we can give back in our own unique way.”

The StoryTrack Season of Stories Video Contest couldn’t be easier to enter.  Simply visit StoryTrack’s Facebook page, “like” the page, leave a comment with your charity’s name on the contest post, and share it with your network of supporters. The organization with the most votes wins the video.

Video provides the perfect medium for storytelling and helps charitable organizations reach three main goals:
Increase awareness 
Engage supporters
Raise money

StoryTrack recently won an Emmy Award for Transforming Haiti, produced for Meds and Food for Kids (MFK.)  “We’ve found that the visuals of these stories have a real impact on moving people to action, whether it’s volunteering their time or donating their money,” says Dowd.

MFK founder, Dr. Patricia Wolff says video has helped further her mission exponentially.  “Without exception, viewers have been informed and moved by the videos StoryTrack has produced for us. The story of Haiti is a difficult one to tell in words. As the video plays you can see people start to understand and gain such compassion as the story unfolds.” 

Videos for charities can also be used in many ways and distributed easily and inexpensively. “Most of our non-profit clients use their video in a live, gala fundraising setting and then use it on their websites and distribute links through social media.  It’s a huge value and a great return on their investment.” says Dowd.
