Ever worry that you won’t know what to do when you get in the room with a donor? This session will give you a model so you’ll never worry about that again. Learn to ask for a major gift in a way that’ll get you what you want!

Whether you ask a donor for money or your partner to take you out for dinner, the structure of your ask is the same. In this session, you’ll learn a simple, easy-to-remember-structure for asking that’ll make your donors (and your partner) want to say YES.

A seasoned campaign fundraiser and trainer, Andrea will guide you through a six-step conversation model that’s based on sound psychological principles.

You’ll learn how to

  • Talk less and listen more.
