Making An Ask

Here are some of the things we encourage people to do when making an ask 

  • Be fully briefed 
  • Be aware of the objective
  • Be confident 
  • Be prepared - plan and rehearse before you go 
  • Give yourself time 
  • Ask yourself ' Why am I supporting / giving to the campaign ?'
  • Ask yourself ' Why am I involved ' 
  • Ask yourself ' Will they see me as committed ?' 
  • Do your homework, find out about the people you are meeting with 
  • Listen Listen Listen to questions and concerns
  • Share and show the benefits of the project
  • Communication is not just talking - WATCH & LISTEN
  • Be ready to say " I have given, where do you see yourself on the scale of giving?'
