A happy holiday gift from Jerry Panas…………
Every fundraiser has heard this same refrain so many times…. “I just can’t ask for money.” “I simply refuse to ask for money.” “You can’t make me ask for money.” “I won’t serve on your board if you make me ask for money.”
Okay…Whining is okay. Sometimes. Then move on!!! And that’s the fundraiser’s job…to help board members move on and help with fundraising, including asking.
And Jerry is giving this away… An e-book… A tool for you and your boss and your board chair and your board fundraising committee…
A resource for everyone… The top 24 reasons that board members say, “I won’t ask!!!”
Here are a few I particularly like … Like a big grimace and a rant!
“I’m too busy.” Wow. Are you going to show up at board meetings? What else are you too busy for?!
Get a copy of Jerry’s e-book. Have a board conversation. Change the whining for 2016!
