Get Over Your Fear of Asking

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Developing an individual donor program is one of the most effective ways to sustain an organization, but we often avoid it because we are afraid to ask for money. In this workshop we will address our most common sources of fear, and then craft and practice the ask. Participants will leave with techniques and training tools to address fear, a structure for understanding grassroots fundraising and tools for crafting an effective ask.
