Virtual Seminar - Seven Secrets of Successful Solicitations

Date:  September 12, 2017 at 12:00 PM
Location:  Mercy Health Foundation

Seven Secrets of Successful Solicitations 

If you want a gift, you have to ask for it! But that's easier said than done: people consistently rate asking for money at the top of the list of things they fear most. Whether you're an experienced solicitor looking for some new strategies, or new to the game and seeking help, this session will explore the art of asking for a gift. We'll review seven separate step-by-step strategies for building the strongest possible major and planned gift solicitations. Once you learn the principles behind effective asking, you can start to craft stronger and better solicitations that bring in more gifts. Throughout this talk, you will hear examples of more than thirty specifically worded solicitations to help you understand exactly how to put these principles into practice.
