How to Ask for Donations – 3 Tips

1.  Develop your Detachment

If you act needy, people will run away from you.  Establish good relations before you ask for a donation or you’ll be denied.

2.  Offer an Opportunity

You are not “hitting people up for money.”  You are giving them a chance to be of service, to be part of a greater good.  Ask previous donors what they received from giving, and then offer that.

3.  Request and Retreat

They don’t give if you don’t ask.  It is usually a brief period when we can influence people.  When that moment wanes, withdraw and wait.  If you ask but don’t push, people are more willing to say YES to you.

P.S.  My one-minute YouTube video was illustrated by Brazilian artist, Fabiano Cafure.  If you know people who are fundraising for a good cause, tell them to watch this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_ckm5dlSnzQ
