The Asking Academy™ is a first-of-its-kind program designed to dramatically transform your fundraising results. Throughout the Academy NPO leaders receive group and individual coaching from a Certified Conversational Fundraising™ Master Trainer. Teams are equipped to raise more money by effectively conducting one-on-one gift solicitations. We're so confident of your results that the Asking Academy™ offers a no-risk guarantee.

Each Academy engages a cohort of up to 10 organizations in:
  • Strategic preparation prior to the Summit
  • The Summit: 2-days together for interactive, hands-on training
  • Ongoing mentoring with America’s ASKing Coach

Full participation in The Asking Academy may be eligible for 22 points in Category 1.B - Education of the CFRE International application for initial certification and/or recertification.  Contact us for details.

 
Others tell you what to do.
 We show you how.

Every aspect of the Asking Academy™ is results oriented. During the Summit, you'll learn how to climb the 10 Step Staircase, the bedrock of Conversational Fundraising™. You will master strategies to effectively engage board members in major gifts fundraising. You will leave with written action plans for your top donor prospects after practicing the Conversational Fundraising™ approach. You'll expand your network through an unforgettable personal and professional development experience.

Client Testimonials

After attending the Asking Academy, I received my first really large donation, ONE MILLION DOLLARS! Thank you Kent for your excellent training. It was hard for me to change the way I fund raised; but, I had great results when fundraising the KENT WAY. I have given several of your books [Asking about Asking] away. I am giving them for Leadership Tulsa and Broken Arrow Interns. I think this is much better than a PLAQUE! Your book will be a help to them as they sit on other boards!
