Success in fundraising starts with the right mindset. You’re not asking for money; you’re giving someone — whether that’s a foundation, an individual or a corporate partner — an opportunity to support a meaningful mission. This session is aimed at professionals and volunteers involved in social impact who are ready to break down barriers to fundraising success. We’ll cover: getting over the money taboo, turning scarcity mindset into abundance mindset, and starting where you are. After getting over those hurdles, we’ll talk tactics, share inspiration, and even practice making the ask.
