Being True to Yourself and Keeping Your Sanity While Raising Money

RAISING CLARITY works a lot by phone and somewhat face-to-face. Thus, this is our first live-recorded webinar. Here is a link to the recording.

We started out with some basics:

  • What’s a “real” prospect? Your donors need to have A, B, and C–ability, belief, and commitment–to be genuine prospects for giving.
  • Where’s the money? You already know the people you need to know to get started. Stop looking “out there” and start asking (planfully and boldly) the people you know and maybe the people they know.
  • Who gives the most? Statistically, it’s people with less money rather than more.
  • What’s the best (or easiest) way to raise money? Depends on what you mean by “best.” The most effective is also (for many) the most scary: face-to-face.
