Almost 90% of all charitable gifts come from individuals, and the largest gifts come from asking one-on-one in person. Accessing these gifts is critical to fulfilling the mission of your organization. So how do you do it?
There’s no one right way to ask for a gift. Who you are and what you bring to the table are critically important. When you ask in a way that suits you personally, you will be more comfortable and more effective.
