I am so excited I can hardly stand it! We’ve just released our newest e-book, The Asking Workbook: How to Ask for Big Gifts for Your Great Cause. It’s the culmination of decades of asking – and training others to ask – for contributions.
We wrote the book because almost every day we meet someone who is afraid to ask for money for a cause they care about. We understand that asking can be scary. For a capitalist culture, American’s are amazing uncomfortable talking about money.
But, fundraising actually isn’t about money at all. It’s about putting values into action.
If you can connect with a prospective donor about your shared vision for a better world, it’s amazing how quickly fundraising can become satisfying and even fun. We promise!
If you present an opportunity to invest in a worthwhile cause, you’re potentially doing the prospect a huge favor. We all want to make change in the world. A donation is a great way to do it. And giving to a solid organization that we can trust – well that’s just magical!
Even though you might agree with me up to this point, I understand if a little thing like terror is still preventing you (or your volunteers) from asking someone for money – face to face.
Our new e-book offers a simple path for making the ask. It’s a system that works. Even for those who suffer from severe trepidation.
The key is to follow these start-to-finish steps to implement a thoughtful, donor-centric ask:
These steps take the mystery out of asking. We’ve seen them transform the most nervous neophytes into experienced and enthusiastic solicitors.
