Three tips for fundraisers

Ben Franklin had some great advice for fundraisers!

  1. Ask people you KNOW will give.
  2. Ask those who might give. Let them know what you’ve raised so far. If appropriate, show them who’s already given.
  3. Ask those you know won’t give. They may surprise you! NEVER say “No” for someone! Give them a chance to surprise you!

Of course this assumes that you represent a cause worth giving to AND have shared a compelling vision AND have laid out a strategy/plan that represents thoughtful leadership.
