A Whopping 96% of the People Who Attended This Nonprofit Webinar Rated It As Great to Excellent!
Asking for charitable gifts one-to-one is the most effective fundraising you can do. Research on non-profits shows that 75% of all in-person asks of individuals result in a gift. Those are incredible odds. So, how to get new donors? While we can’t ask in person much today, we can ask by phone, email, and video chat, and almost all the best practices still apply.
Yet asking people individually is also the most challenging fundraising you will do, and you need the understanding and tools to do it comfortably and effectively.
Brian Saber, one of the foremost experts in the field, will show you how to use your personal Asking Style every step of the way from identifying the best prospects for you to soliciting them for quality gifts.
The Asking Styles, developed by Brian Saber’s company, Asking Matters, are a revolutionary way for everyone – staff and volunteers alike - to learn how nonprofit professionals can fundraise in a way that suits their personality and takes into account their strengths and challenges.

What Attendees Said about This Nonprofit Webinar:
“Brian was such a good and authentic guide to the nuances of asking. I was particularly struck by his humility and his openness, sharing that some of the same things that make so many of us uncomfortable in asking have made *him* uncomfortable too. In my experience with fundraising webinars, this is unusual. I will definitely be back for Brian's other webinars through CharityHowTo!”
