Event description

Description

During this session, you’ll have the chance to dive into the art of live asks in advance of spring gala season. “Live asks” are any fundraising ask given in front of a group, like at a house party, a gala, a performance, or a community meeting.

We’ll unpack examples of great (and terrible) asks, break those down, and help you build an ask based on your organization’s work and audience. You’ll also get the chance to give your ask and receive feedback in a super supportive and encouraging environment.
