The Art of the Ask: Raising all the resources your organization needs

In this webinar, we review the key elements of an individual giving program and demonstrate a variety of approaches to making “a big ask.” We brush up on the basics, show common situations fundraisers face, and even explore some asks that can be more valuable than a big check.

Donor Communities: Ways to evolve your individual giving program into a community of fundraisers

Many of us may feel like we are alone in raising the resources for our organization, and sometimes it’s because we are.

Join Katie and Trevor to learn some ways to use your existing donor stewardship efforts to identify and recruit volunteer fundraisers.
