Ask Without Fear! Fundraising Class

Ask Without Fear! EXPANDED Fundraising SeminarBillions of dollars will be given away this year. Don’t be left out!

Ask Without Fear! can help!

The fundraising book and fundraising DVD have helped thousands of nonprofit leaders, employees, and board members get comfortable with making asks!

But people don’t always read or watch DVDs. Now there’s the Ask Without Fear! Fundraising Class!

In this 90-minute class, you’ll learn how to go through each step for the fundraising process. You’ll also get time to ask Marc questions about your own situation. As you learn the tricks and secrets, you’ll begin to feel more confident!

There are no scheduled courses at this time. Get the same great information by purchasing the Ask Without Fear! DVD

Here is a taste of what you’ll learn in:


  • How to set your fundraising goal
  • What a gift range calculator is and how it can help you figure out what levels of gifts to ask

The day after a live version of Ask Without Fear!, one participant emailed me to say:

I enjoyed your seminar so much, as did Danielle. We walked away very excited, and have already increase the number of people that will be at our next meeting, as well as more businesses coming on board to add to our fund raising. We have incredible things going on, and now adding what we have learned from your seminar has just motivated us even more.

Thank you so much for the gift you have given to us.
