NYU Heyman Center for Philanthropy and Fundraising ‘Art of the Ask: From the Perspectives of Professionals and Philanthropist’
October 4, 2013
Asking for a gift is both an art and a science. Without an understanding of the most effective methods of asking for financial support, no fundraiser responsible for soliciting gifts from individuals, corporations, or foundations can succeed. In this course, three highly successful fundraisers discuss their approaches and a philanthropist is invited to report on how he or she reacts to a particular ask.
