I’ve written two pieces for the Association of Fundraising Professionals Information Exchange series. The Information Exchange is designed to leverage the knowledge and experience of thousands of AFP members around the world. Writers submit short papers on a variety of subjects. The Information Exchange pieces focus on practical, “how-to” topics that can help fundraising professionals in their daily work. The Information Exchange papers are available to AFP members at no charge as a member benefit.
The two papers recently posted are Talking About Your Own Gift and Those of Others – Including a Handy List of 12 “Ask Phrases” and Engaging Your Colleagues to Become Part of the Fundraising Team.
While these papers are normally only available to AFP members, if you contact me directly at Capital Development Strategies, I can send you a copy. However, if you are a fundraising professional, I highly encourage you to join AFP. It’s worth the investment!
