Asking With Confidence, Courage and Conviction
Habits and Skills for Major Giving

Asking for major gifts isn’t always a natural conversation. We understand that even the most seasoned fundraising professional can feel awkward or unsure.  
 
Mission Increase’s major gifts workshop will equip you to confidently invite champions to participate in the work God has called you to do together. You will leave with practical tools and habit-forming skills to help you:
  • Find the strength and words to ask courageously and with confidence
  • Develop disciplines for communicating impact and stewardship
  • Keep your major gifts efforts organized and on track
  • Discern the right next invitation for every champion
Mission Increase’s Transformational Giving principle six says, "The liberating nature of generosity means inviting champions to give is a sacred task." You can invite and receive gifts in a way that “will result in thanksgiving to God” (2 Corinthians 9:11b). You will discover that fundraising is a joyful calling.
 
This workshop will benefit anyone who interacts with your champions, especially major gifts staff, executive directors, board members and volunteers. If you or anyone on your team has been apprehensive about asking for gifts, register today.
