University Fundraising

Take Your University Fundraising to the Next Level

Fundraising is an essential practice for universities. It provides them with increased funds, brings them closer to influential donors, forges relationships with alumni and increases their gifts and donations. When it comes to university fundraising, most of the universities we work with claim that their top priority is to increase their alumni engagement. After all, establishing ongoing relationships with alumni is essential for lifelong giving.

Working with AskRIGHT on their coaching program for frontline fundraisers as a newcomer to the field of Donor Relations is proving to be a great arrangement. I like that their coaching program is structured as a weekly video conference session to re-enforce the learning and develop tactics for growing successful relationships through face-to-face fundraising with my potential donors. 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 am confident that, with the coaching of Dr. Jason Ketter, I will be better equipped to put Catholic Mission forward, for our donors to consider and support.
