It’s not easy to connect with donors and get rejected. But stay with it. It’s worth it to find out which donors want to hear from you.
Are you afraid to challenge your donor to make a larger gift? Sometimes we get too comfortable with “regular” giving. Leave your fear behind!
Sometimes bad things happen in your practice of fundraising, and you’re the one left holding the bag. Covering it up only makes it worse; be honest with donors and management.
Nonprofit leaders – and even fundraising professionals – are often afraid to ask for money. How do you get over that and start real asks from real donors?
Are you afraid of a no? Do you find yourself figuring out how NOT to ask your donors for a gift? Rejection is a learning tool – and you will be OK.
Do your donor a favor – ask her to give to a cause she cares about. It may help you, too; but go ahead and help her fulfill her desire to help.
