Asking for Money these Last 3 Days of the Year
[00:00:00] Hi there, Nancy to here. Listen up as I share my latest tip of focusing on large gift fundraising.
[00:00:06] You've probably heard me say this is we would come in these three days or we would be online and we had someone in the accounting department checking the mail, let us and us know when checks came in or anything came in that we needed to be aware of.
[00:00:21] And these last three days we were on the phone either calling, certainly board members who we had not received money from. ‘Cause there's always a board member or two, who's forgotten and we always wanna remind them and then we'd call others that we always heard from and you might say, "Hey this is Nancy with ABC Nonprofit.
[00:00:40] I just wanted make sure we can count on you this year. You're so incredibly supportive every year and, we are so thankful for you and , either give me a call or let me know if you have any questions. I hope we can count on you. Thanks a bunch. Bye." That's a voice message. So that's what we were doing these last three days, big days. People are writing checks. Okay. And you decide your bandwidth, what, what you can do.
[00:01:06] I have these in darker green cuz they're more money, Green's money. This is important. This is a holiday and I would not do anything the Friday the 30th. . This is the season for asking.
