Michigan Main Street Quarterly Training

Wayland Mi

March 28, 2011

This training will focus on the review of methods to upgrade each of these critical revenue sources. Learn ways of getting the board more involved in fundraising. There are two components—one about helping managers understand how every board member can participate in some aspect of fundraising rather than being disappointed all the time that some board members are just not comfortable asking people for money. The second part is an introduction to the process of asking people for major gifts—say anything over $1000 that is not a sponsorship. We talk about donor cultivation, what information you need about people before you can ask them for money, and creating a case statement for support. We then talk about the five component parts of the ASK—the one on one approach to a donor for a major gift. We end with an exercise where the group is divided into the five teams with a case study about a donor and a common thing they are hoping to raise money for.
