[00:00:00] Hi there. I was talking with a member of one of my coaching groups last week, and she mentioned how she needed more help in an area where she is stuck. It's an area we had talked about quite a bit in our coaching calls. The issue is that she dislikes making phone calls and feels slightly uncomfortable meeting with people.

[00:00:19] She feels almost paralyzed. There's no reason for this, she said. But it's been limiting her progress. With the many questions and continued conversations, I'm drilling down on teaching fundraisers how to make donor calls quickly and effectively. Because fundraisers tend to put off calling or meeting with donors.

[00:00:40] It's an area that needs more attention. Because not everyone likes to make phone calls. Not everyone is inclined to reach for the phone. It's much easier to send an email. But there's a problem with always sending emails. It's often harder to connect on a personal level. We can't always read the interest or passion in a person's voice.

[00:01:00] We can't hear their inflection and emphasis. We can't answer questions a donor has about a program they're interested in. And emojis don't always get it. Reaching out to donors between your ask is a critical part of relationship building process. Connecting with donors on a personal level is especially what brings success with large gift fundraising, with bringing in the big fish.

[00:01:26] So what if I told you I had sample scripts to share with you?
