Are you scared to ask for money?

Asking for money is as scary for people as death and public speaking. But it doesn't have to be!

Relief is here!

The "Ask Without Fear!" training will help you take the fear out of asking so you won't have to feel guilty anymore!

Learn a simple "R.E.A.L." method that takes much of the fear out of the process. This workshop is perfect for nonprofit employees and volunteers and will give you proven techniques to improve your fundraising skills

You'll learn:

  • a 4-part system to structure your solicitation
  • actual phrases to use during your solicitations
  • and a powerful way to overcome objections, even before they happen!

While this may seem perfect for startups and those new to fundraising, even seasoned veterans leave invigorated and with new strategies.

The cost of the workshop includes a copy of Marc Pitman's book Ask Without Fear!

This training is eligible for 3 CFRE education credits.
