Fundraising: Getting Past the Fear of Asking
This engaging coaching session focuses on getting past the fear of asking
and how to avoid some common mistakes. Learn an easy way to sort through
contact lists and build a strong prospect list based on the 3 Cs of
fundraising: capacity, connection and commitment. Learn specific language
for how to make a strong ask, based on the relationship-building tips
shared in Art of the Schmooze, and ten tips that will make your next
fundraising plan a success. "If you are afraid to ask for money, kick
yourself out of the way and let the cause talk."
