Are You Asking for the Gift?
Are you a major gift fundraiser, but you find it hard to ask donors for money? That will sound strange to some, but for others it’s real.
While a few people are proud that they can steward donor relationships without making direct asks, most of us know that fundraising involves asking. Not only that but when you’re managing a caseload well, your donors want you to ask!
Or maybe you are an experienced fundraiser who isn’t scared to ask, but wants to improve your ask to be more meaningful to the donors? You will be excited about learning a new model for asking for a gift that honors and empowers the donor through every step of the process and celebrates the difference they are making, regardless of their response to the ask. The new Permission Based Asking™ Model is a game-changer; it will give you the tools you’ve been looking for to have more meaningful conversations with your donors.
No matter where you are in your fundraising journey, this course will help you to deepen your relationship with your donors, be present in those conversations, and ask better questions.
So, how do you have meaningful conversations where the donor feels honored, respected, and heard through every step of the process? Well, we believe it takes a new way of looking at your relationship with donors, and a new permission-based asking model to help you through those donor interactions.
In this course from Veritus Group’s Major Gift Academy, we provide you with a comprehensive course that includes webinars, podcasts, readings, application assignments, and individual coaching to help you reframe how you ask for a gift, conquer your fears, and become more actively engaged with your donor’s philanthropic goals.
Participants will be able to start this course whenever it works best for their schedule and will have two months from the first login to complete the material.
You will learn the key principles of our new Permission Based Asking™ Model and how it will revolutionize every conversation you have with your donors as you ask them to move forward in their engagement with your organization.
In addition to the incredible course material, you will also have the opportunity to have a one-hour, one-on-one coaching session with a Veritus Client Experience Leader who works with fundraisers on a daily basis. Your coach will help you practice the model, work through an upcoming meeting, and help you overcome your barriers to asking for a gift.
After taking this course, you will have a changed perspective, new tools, and a clearer focus on how to have permission-based conversations with every donor on your caseload. This process and incredible questions apply to everything from asking a donor their interests and passions, come on a tour, or for a financial gift.
Believe us, the Major Gift Academy is designed specifically for you to find the true joy it is to help major donors fulfill their passions to change the world through their giving.
