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

Kent is awesome at creating a dynamic learning environment that engages, inspires and equips people to achieve fundraising success! I appreciate your investment in me and Heroes on the Water to develop and carry out a thoughtful major gifts strategy that will reap benefits for our nation’s warriors, their families and communities for years to come. Thank you both for everything...it was a fantastic few days together that has set the foundation for a successful future! My next step is meeting tomorrow with Jim Dolan, Executive Director and Founder of Heroes on the Water. He is eager to learn and begin utilizing the ASKing about Asking model. Anyone who is involved in fundraising for a non-profit would extremely benefit from attending the two day academy.
