Let's start with this: Most volunteers are no strangers to the concept of "sales", and many are actually successful professional salespeople. However, because there is no immediate or promised exchange of product or service for the money they receive, volunteers usually perceive fundraising as "begging". Further, the language of fundraising--"gifts", "donors", "charity", etc. supports these misconceptions and reinforces volunteers' feelings that they appear to be asking for money for themselves--which they would never do.
On the other hand, everyone seems to know a volunteer who is not only willing to ask for money, but actually finds some satisfaction in this process! In addition, this person is usually very successful at fundraising. These folks are not necessarily more intelligent, more powerful, or more aggressive than the rest of us. They quite simply have an attitude--an approach to the task--that almost assures their success.
What do they know that will bring you and your fundraising campaign the same success? Learn the seven great secrets of successful fundraising in this basic booklet, and everyone will think you're a fundraising genius!
