BoardLaunch - Friendraising and Fundraising: The Art of Making the Ask

November 14, 2017. It comes naturally to some and for others, the fear of “asking” often stands in the way of raising funds necessary to support a nonprofit organization.  By changing your mindset to approach FUNDraising as FRIENDraising, you can build relationships that lead to engaged and more active donors. Created with the volunteer board member perspective in mind, this interactive session led by Connie Isaacson, provides participants with strategies and tactics that can eliminate the fear of “asking” and get more people engaged in raising dollars for your nonprofit.  Join us to explore just how easy it can be to make “the ask” and encourage others to join you in the effort. **We are currently at capacity for this session. If interested in attending please email Barb Hobson to be added to a waiting list.        

*Please note the Community Foundation does not issue refunds for registration cancellations. Please contact Anna Nalean with any questions or to discuss other potential options.
