The Nebraska Community Foundation works with community, organizational and donor-advised affiliated funds serving 250 communities located in 80 counties. NCF and its affiliated funds have reinvested $269 million in Nebraska since 1994.
NCF’s “Lunch and Learn” series is a virtual path to peer learning. Log-in on the first Wednesday of the month to explore cutting edge topics with your fellow volunteers. Each 30-minute session is designed to give you a powerful idea to ponder for the next month.
Upcoming Lunch & Learn
Less Stress and a Larger Check
(How to Pinpoint the Right Asking Amount)
April 5th at Noon
Most volunteers’ second greatest fear is asking for money. Their biggest fear is asking for a specific amount! Join NCF and Mike Moravec of the Butler County Area Foundation Fund for a 30-minute discussion on how to ask for the right amount. Through his extensive volunteer fundraising experience, Mike quickly learned that his most successful asks happened when he went to donors with a dollar amount in mind. Mike will reveal the key to pinpointing that number and why you should stop stressing about the process and just enjoy building a relationship with your donors!
This session will be particularly valuable if your affiliated fund is in campaign mode, or hopes to be soon!
