The Asking Conversation

The Kinder, Gentler, Much More Successful Way to Get Your Donor To Say Yes

Join us for a workshop with fundraising veteran, Andrea Kihlstedt for a workshop of fun and games about asking.

Yes, asking can be fun in the same way a conversation can be fun. And we’ll explore that side of asking in this special session.

You’ll get a little bit of brilliant, helpful theory and a lot of engaging practice asking people for money.

You’ll learn your personal asking style and find out how to make that work for you.

You’ll learn simple tips that work--questions that open up a discussion and phrases that move your conversation through a seamless arc.

You’ll help your colleagues with some stop-action advice. And you’ll overcome your anxieties by practicing language that’s comfortable for you.

By the time you leave, while you may not put asking for gifts at the top of your fun-list, it may actually have a place somewhere on that list.


COST: $50
