What if raising more donations for your nonprofit was simple and fast? 

 

Welcome to a monthly training series that teaches low-cost ways for fundraisers to raise

more money in less time  

Fundraising has never been more important or demanded so much courage. 

 

Is this you?  You're struggling to get in-person visits with donors.   Or get your foot in the door. 

You break into a cold sweat thinking about asking donors for money.  Your top prospects won't return your emails or phone calls.  You aren't sure which donors to focus on or how much you can realistically raise.  You've got whiplash from live events going virtual, then back to in-person, and now virtual again. 

Your patience for the term "pivot" ran out last year. 

Like it or not if you're going to succeed you must: 

✓ bravely make your case

✓ strengthen donor relationships

write the best appeals you’ve ever written

✓ zero in on your BEST prospects 

✓ solicit the big gifts with confidence  

cut through your donor’s crowded inbox to win their hearts, minds & wallets

How will you do it?

November  Workshop "Closing Gifts: How to Ask"      

 

Asking someone for money can feel frightening and intimidating. 

Sitting down with someone you admire to discover their greatest challenges, unfulfilled dreams and what brings their life meaning sounds like time well spent.

The myth of asking for money is that we are taking something away from someone, or “hitting them up”. 

The truth is people like to give!   Giving gives our lives meaning and purpose.  It's the neurological equivalent of winning the lottery. 

So why does asking for money rank as one of our all-time biggest fears? 

This confidence-boosting workshop lets you see through your donor's eyes as you experience the thrill and joy of giving and master the soft skills to bravely get big gifts.

Are you ready to nail the ask and set fundraising records at your org in 2022?

Join me to master:

  • Soft skills to win at face to face asks
  • Donor motivations for giving 
  • Insider tips to quickly build rapport with donors on a visit
  • How much to ask for
  • The winning ask formula 
  • Real-life scripts to ask for gifts (that you will want to steal!)
  • The formula for a perfect donor  visit every time
  • Timesaving tips & tools to put it all into practice 

Join me for the live “Closing Gifts: How to Ask” workshop on Thursday, November 18 at 11 am CST/ 12 noon EST.   

You’ll walk away with a  renewed sense of pride, passion, and purpose and be well on your way to becoming your donor’s favorite charity!

Who am I and why should you listen to me? 

My name is Rachel Muir and I am just as passionate about making the world a better place as you are. 

I’ve started and run my own nonprofit, raised over 10 million and was featured on Oprah, CNN and the Today show.

It took a lot of inspiration and a truck-load of guts to get to where I am today. 

I have helped thousands of fundraisers land big gifts, delight their donors, and love their jobs…all because I use proven systems and methods.  Because nobody wants theory!   

Real love notes & testimonials from students...

“Holy cow!  I followed your workbook on end-of-year appeals.  I don't know how to keep up with all the gifts that are pouring through the door!"

Terri Potter, Director of Development White Mountain Trail Collective  

Rachel is very good at keeping my attention, explaining things and remaining patient.  She’s high energy, on the cutting edge of technologies that can be used for giving, and gives great take-away (downloadable) content!
