Are you raising money for a nonprofit organization with a small development office or no paid fundraising staff? Do you want to raise more money? Are you stuck in a rut with your fundraising program? Do you want to feel motivated and re-energized about fundraising? Do you need an action plan?

While there are many critical components of a small development office, you cannot raise money if you do not ask for gifts. This book is about getting back to basics, increasing the number and size of gifts you ask for and receive, and keeping you disciplined so you remember to "ask" all year long.

50 Asks in 50 Weeks will help you:

  • Raise more money.
  • Create a basic development plan.
  • Identify new prospects.
  • Ask for gifts more frequently.
  • Review the basics of fundraising.
  • Work with your board on fundraising.
  • Hire your first development staff member.

Work as a cohesive development team with your executive director, development staff members, and board members.

About CharityChannel's In the Trenches Books
You'll know an In the Trenches book not just by its cover, but by the author's fun, upbeat writing style. But don't be fooled by its down-to-earth approach and ample use of sidebars. In the Trenches books are authoritative and cover what a beginner should know to get started and progress rapidly, and what a more experienced nonprofit-sector practitioner needs to move forward in the subject.
