It takes time, creativity and a great relationship with those who are about to cut you a giant check. This more advanced workshop will frame a donor’s capacity, alignment to your organization and walking through making that big ask. Be ready to role play, work on donor strategy plans, and create talking points and overcome objections or hesitations.
