How to Confidently Make the “Ask” (Even if You Hate Fundraising)
What if you knew the steps to pivot off the spin-cycle of small gifts and start securing larger donations on a regular basis? How would you like to confidently secure 50-75% of the funding you need each year by leading your top 30 donors to their best gift? It’s doable. This session will demystify solicitations and help you see there is a path to securing larger gifts from individuals. Using the example of a $10,000 ask, we’ll walk you through the methodology so you can learn how to confidently pivot, and what three things a donor must have clear in their mind before they’ll give their best gift.
Presented by Sherry Quam-Taylor, this highly-rated encore session was recorded live at our first Summit for Nonprofit Changemakers…and the lesson will take you far.

Sherry teaches nonprofit leaders how to pivot from small-dollar donations to securing larger, investment-level donations so they can finally fund their missions. The leaders she works with are experts in their field, but when it comes to individual donor fundraising, they’ve simply never been trained on how to do it, so it feels uncomfortable and frustrating. She helps them learn the exact steps to launch a mid-and-major level gift program that feels comfortable, involves less dread, and fully funds their mission for the long haul. She does this nationally through her private coaching and her 90-day LET’S GROW Fundraising Accelerator.
