Asking for Donations – A Best Practices Infographic

Asking for Donations

Do you remember the classic game of operation? It tested many a child and parent’s hand-eye coordination and nerve.

Players take turns using a pair of tweezers to attempt to remove items from the board without touching the metal sides. Just the smallest touch and a buzz signals the end of your tun.

A big fundraising ask isn’t that different. One slip up and you could blow it. But if you understand what your audience is looking for and how to best go about asking for donations you’ll be that much better off.

NonprofitHub created this great infographic to help you carefully execute your next ask.

    Creative infographic Craig! You’ve really covered a lot of the things that go into asking for a donation. My favorite is Stay Connected, whether the answer is yes or no. If it’s yes, the donor will enjoy the validation of their decision with a thank-you and follow-up communication. If no, try again later! Maybe something about your org will change their mind!
