Ask Your Donors Workshop
The technique side of asking for a gift, in-person.
Major gift solicitation is surrounded by cultural angst around money and misconceptions around what fundraising is all about. As a result, the mere thought of asking for a gift makes most people uncomfortable. There are major gift solicitation techniques that will increase the likelihood of success—techniques that can be taught and practiced. Knowing what you are doing is a confidence builder! And there are ways to think about fundraising that flip many preconceptions on their head!
This is an interactive workshop. You will learn:
- Why it makes sense to think about “asking” as a gift you are bringing to your donors—not as something you are taking away from them.
- How to set-up the donor visit—the hardest part!
- Literally how to ask for the gift—and what to do when the donor responds with some variation of “Let me think about it.”
- How to set-up the next step.
