  • What is a major gift fundraiser to do with all this free time?
    By Marc A. Pitman - Friday Aug 14, 2020

    For decades, we've known that face-to-face meetings were the best way to raise major gifts. Talking directly to people. Taking them on a tour of the project.

  • What’s the Right Time to Ask for a Gift?
    By Kristi Pavlik - Friday Aug 14, 2020

    Today, we want to help you with one of the thorniest questions of major gift fundraising: What's the right time to ask for a gift? When should you ask your donor?

    We all struggle with this issue. And when we are unsure about timing, we tend to delay or postpone our asks - leaving gifts on the table.


    Our recommendation? Don't wait to ask! Why? Because your donor may be ready, but you are not aware of it.

    You may be in the dark about what your donor wants to do. You may be moving ahead and just nurturing the relationship, and you are missing your donor's cues that they'd like to help right now.
