Potential supporters aren’t telepathic. One of the key rules of fundraising is that ‘if you don’t ask you won’t get!’
Asking an individual, a company, a trust, another organisation for a donation, or to come to an event, to volunteer their time or provide services, on behalf of your charity need not be a harrowing affair.
Making an Ask can even be (gulp!) a pleasant and enjoyable experience. People involved in fundraising are often nervous to make the ‘Ask’ but we’ll look at some of the psychology around asking and how to make it a positive experience.
Cost: Members £75, non-members £85
