Don’t leave a legacy of regrets. Leave a legacy of inspiring donors to give more than they thought possible and feeling incredible joy!
Non-profit leaders and fundraising professionals are often afraid of asking for money. Here’s how to conquer that fear.
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?
When you do a lot to thank and show the donor your organization cares about them – but you never ask, or never think big with the donor, and never report on that gift’s impact – is that really showing the donor love?
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.
If the major donor team and the direct-response teams are doing their work, there is harmony and consistency between both. They don’t worry about who gets credit for how the revenue comes in, because each department knows they need each other and it’s the organization AND the donor that is important.
