Image of the cover of Ask WIthout Fear! Ask Without Fear!® is a proven fundraising system praised by numerous media and nonprofit influencers. We tailor our expertise by cause and nonprofit size to provide practical, relevant information to each media audience, from solo professionals to corporate executives.

We can discuss many nonprofit, branding, fundraising, and social media strategies including:

  • how anyone can ask for charitable gifts, and enjoy it
  • how nonprofits can raise more money, even in a recession
  • helping donors choose a trustworthy charity
  • how nonprofits can use social media (Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn) to expand their donor base
  • how nonprofit leaders must refocus efforts and strategy in light of the ongoing, painfully slow recovery
  • how to re-tool a nonprofit’s story to make as the most persuasive possible, even using the best of what science is teaching us about how the brain works

“We made good use of your interview. It ran as a full interview, as news stories, and in abbreviated form during our morning show. It has also been added as a podcast on our website.”

“Marc, you just made my day! You were so great and down to earth and really put me at ease, so it was equally a joy to work with you!”

“I just wanted to say ‘thanks’ for the great help on fundraising you offer! I’ve passed your website on to many friends in the development arena. As a busy executive director of a small (very small!) nonprofit for at-risk youth, with limited (no) fundraising background, your tips are so helpful. I have implemented many, and they have really helped me improve!”
Faith Bosland, Executive Director
Springfield Christian Youth Ministries

“Working with Marc was a total pleasure. He is upbeat but realistic; sees the big picture but takes care of the details; asks the right questions and really listens to the answers. The three year plan he created for strengthening our governance structure will enable us to go forward with clear direction and confidence that we’ll realize our goals.”
