Can you ask for a major gift via phone or over a video chat? YES – if done thoughtfully!

The fundraising rules have changed for 2020, but we are here to help. During this free webinar, Vice President Victoria Dietz will provide you with practical tips and interactive discussion that will help you conquer your potential fears surrounding virtual asks, so you can confidently approach prospects and successfully close a gift. We will share key points such as:

  • How do I make an ask during these days of virtual fundraising?
  • How do I plan for an ask?
  • What logistics do I need to be aware of?
  • What do I actually say when making the ask?
  • How do I close the gift?
  • What do I do if the ask doesn’t go according to plan?
  • How do I keep them engaged after they give?
