Major Gifts: Asking Without Fear
From Fear to Freedom

Let’s face it.  For most of us, asking for major gifts isn’t a natural conversation.  Even the most seasoned among us can be gripped by fear.  It doesn’t have to be like that.   

There is a way to ask for and receive gifts that represents freedom for you, your givers and those God has called you to serve together.  You can invite and receive gifts in a way that “will result in thanksgiving to God” (2 Corinthians 9:11b).

Mission Increase’s Asking Without Fear workshop will equip you to freely invite people to be part of the work God is doing in your ministry.  You might even find you enjoy asking for money!

You will leave with practical skills and tools to help you:

  • Discern the right next gift for your champions
  • Keep your major gifts efforts on track
  • Find the strength and words to ask boldly, without fear
  • Receive the answer with grace and thanksgiving

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.
