JAY FROST TO SPEAK ON WEBCAST TOPIC

The Art & Science of Figuring Out How Much to Request

“Every time I poll people on what stops them from asking,” says Brian Saber, President and Co-Founder of Asking Matters, “two top reasons are ‘afraid to ask for too much’ and ‘afraid to ask for too little’!!! Campaign Guru Jay Frost is an expert at figuring out how much to request. He knows what resources are out there and how to use them to your advantage. And he knows how to use that data when talking to donors. He also knows what to do when you don’t have all the information. Join Jay as he presents his best practices on the subject based on a lifetime of work in the field, and as he and I have a lively dialog on the wrinkles and challenges we all face with our donors.”
