Fundraising Kick: Do not Develop Weary


This challenge of the weekly Fundraising Kick appears to have come on the excellent time for subscribers. So I’m sharing it right here as effectively.

Fundraising Kick teaching emails are written for busy nonprofit CEOs and my non-public teaching purchasers. The purpose is to remind individuals who have full schedules to maintain engaged on main items each week. Because it’s written for CEOs, I seek advice from calling “5 – 10” donors. Clearly, in case your job is devoted to fundraising, you’ll be calling extra folks than that every week!

Good morning, Kickers!

As you attain out to your 5 – 10 main present prospects this week, it’s probably that they’re the identical 5 – 10 you tried to contact final week. Or the week earlier than that.

Don’t develop weary in calling.

We actually want to protect our minds throughout this “in between” time. You may end up considering “They don’t wish to hear from me” or “I’m most likely bugging them.”

You don’t know that.

The one method you understand if you happen to’re bugging a donor is once they let you know.

Most of our donors are extraordinarily busy folks. Beneficiant, however extraordinarily busy. So your constant, dependable makes an attempt to contact them are literally a service. You are attempting to assist them do one other precious factor with their money and time.

So maintain at it. Don’t succumb to the sensation of “I’ll wait till September.” One factor we discovered from final 12 months is that donors give when requested. Donors gave generously even in what we’d come to see because the sluggish instances of the calendar.

So be inspired. Your calls this week matter.

You’ve been Kicked!
