I have been able to leap from the growth in my skills in a matter of weeks – securing more meetings and building more results in a shorter time.
JANE CONNOLLY, PHILANTHROPY MANAGER AT AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL
I have realized there must be a shift in our approach to philanthropy. We must become more effective storytellers in order to communicate the value and impact donors make. Working with AskRIGHT has given me exceptional confidence to do this.
DAVID OLIVIER, DIRECTOR (CATHOLIC SOCIAL SERVICES) AT ARCHDIOCESE OF WELLINGTON
I am already seeing the power that comes from asking questions, and doing so in the ‘right’ way, at the ‘right’ time, for the ‘right’ causes… I will be better equipped to put Catholic Mission forward, for our donors to consider and support.
EMILY CONNORS, DONOR RELATIONS OFFICER AT CATHOLIC MISSION
AskRIGHT have shown tremendous skills in identifying our needs, giving strategic direction and applying the correct constituent focus. Hiring a fundraising consultant has been very helpful in identifying key strategies for fundraising and moving our organisation toward the achievement of those strategic goals within our particular parameters and constraints.
MARK FOX, CEO AT MISSION AVIATION FELLOWSHIP NEW ZEALAND
The AskRIGHT team helped us face and overcome our initial reluctance to get involved in organised fundraising, and gave our small group of campaign volunteers the training, courage, and the incentive to raise the funding required.

SARAH HAMPEL, DIRECTOR OF DEVELOPMENT AND MARKETING AT ST MARK’S COLLEGE
Now each and every donor visit is focused and productive. I know what to ask and how to listen. I am now seeing the returns on my commitment as donors become more engaged as we move them strategically through the donor cycle.
