Making a face-to-face ask: How to not make it weird!

No topic inspires greater seat-squirming than that of asking for a gift face-to-face.

In this masterclass, we’ll tackle common fundraising fears head-on, arming you with the tools you need to confidently invite support from existing friends and new donors.
