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 is applicable for 22 points in Category 1.B - Education of the CFRE International application for initial certification and/or recertification."

 
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

'Asking about Asking' has become an important part of my professional tool box. Brandishing the book, one of my clients commented after attending your workshop on 'Asking about Asking' that she felt as though now she had the method that would lead her organization to success in its capital campaign. Its easy to understand style and common sense approach have made a big difference in helping staff and board members face their fears about asking for donations and has given them the confidence needed to reach their goals.
