They know they need to ask people for money. They know their nonprofit deserves it. And that it won’t be funded if they don’t ask people for money.
Let us introduce you to the Fundraising Coach, Marc A. Pitman. We’ve shared a lot of his Free Articles.
What We’ve Learned is You Need Little Kick, something to get you out asking for donations. You need the encouragement to act on what they already know.
Marc is a Kick in the Ask!
Most nonprofit leaders just need a little kick. That’s where Mrc and his weekly newsletter te, “Kick”comes in. Fundraising Kick is a weekly coaching email dedicated to getting you out the door to ask someone for money. Each week you’ll get nuggets of proven fundraising strategies, steps to make lists and work through those lists, and even scripts to use on the phone or when you’re sitting in front of a prospect.
“I like that the emails are filled with simple things that can be done right now to bring in some income and re-engage donors. Simple things that I kind of know to do, but don’t always make time to do…I think Fundraising Kick coaching emails are excellent, I really do.”
Michael Hodsgon, Founder
You can think of “Kick” in terms of:
- caffeine — as in “That coffee has a kick!”
- or spice — as in “This curry sure has a kick!”
- or simply as a kick in the pants!
It isn’t free. It costs $9.97/month. For something that costs less than a latte a week, the potential ROI is phenomenal. One ask could pay for a year’s subscription for an entire team of fundraisers!
“Thank you for Fundraising Kick! The one on fundraising cocktail parties was one of the most useful things I’ve seen as I’m trying to get members of our Trustees to host parties. It’s nice to have a clear plan from an outside expert.”
— Robin Glossner, Development Coordinator, James V. Brown Library, Williamsport, PA
Fundraising Kick isn’t for everyone.
Kicks are crafted specifically for super busy nonprofit leaders, especially CEO’s, executive directors, and board members. The coaching emails will often be short but each has incredibly concrete steps. Marc does all he can short of reaching through the email and dialing the phone for you!
“Every week I get one of Marc’s Fundraising Kick emails. They are great! The Kicks don’t always pertain to my situation, but they remind me to focus on what’s important.”
— Trisha Box, Regional Representative, KLOVE/AIR-1 Radio, San Antonio, TX
“The Fundraising Kick coaching emails are great. Short, sweet and useful. They definitely gave me ideas and encouragement. Thank you for making my job easier and more enjoyable.”
— Eli Adler, Director of Development, Jewish Arizonans on Campus, Phoenix, AZ
This isn’t some pre-written email autoresponder program. Marc creates this message each week so it’s fresh and helps you capitalize on current events, holidays, and anything else that might help fund your cause.
