There is no question that direct face-to-face conversations with individual donors is the best way to ask for larger and more meaningful gifts. But actually making these meetings happen can bring on anxiety. 

In this lively one-hour virtual introductory workshop, you will learn tips and tricks for taming your anxiety in donor conversations and reaching out to your donors to more fully engage them in the life of your organization. This workshop is for anyone who wants to gain confidence in reaching out to donors and having meaningful conversations either online or in person.

  • Learn how to relax in your donor visits by using the Connecting Conversations Model.
  • Increase your skills and confidence to make your donor meetings successful.

Asking without Anxiety is designed to support you in gaining confidence, being more prepared, and feeling less anxious in donor conversations.
