How to ask for
major gifts

About the Workshop

Far too often, fundraising is done in a transactional way rather than in a relational way. This, unsurprisingly, can be unpleasant for both the asker and the giver! Even with the most relational approach, asking for money can be intimidating! In this six-week workshop, you will gain a time-tested approach for cultivating relationships and engaging their major donors as partners in your school’s mission. You will learn the key stages and steps that are critical to your success, practical tips and even practice with others in your cohort.

Meeting Dates and Times: Mondays at 5pm EST, starting October 10
