What do you do when a donor lowballs you and gives way below their capacity and passion for your mission? How do you turn a $20K into a $300K gift in one conversation?
How do you raise a $1M gift in 30 days in 2 conversations? How do you upgrade a donor from $50K a year to donating $350K a year and opening up their network to you and your team in 2 months’ time?
We will walk through real-life client case studies on leveraging their strengths in fundraising, asking for more, and engaging supporters and board members to raise 6 and 7-figure gifts in record time.
Join us for this actionable workshop if you’re ready to stop settling for less and step into bold, clear conversations with ultra-high-net-worth individuals already in connected to your work.   Learning Objectives:
