More than 85% of all charitable dollars come from individuals…and the largest gifts come from one-to-one cultivation and asking. That means building relationships, and that’s why we developed the Asking Styles. We believe everyone can be a great fundraiser because everyone can build relationships by using the natural strengths of their personality to be more comfortable and effective when cultivating and asking.

Use your Asking Style to Your Advantage.
“My Asking Style is Rainmaker strongest and Mission Controller second. These styles both fit me well and consistently hold true. I like to be very well prepared. I want to have as much information as possible before going into a meeting with a potential donor. That said, if I don’t have much information that is okay too, because I don’t mind asking questions to get to know the donor. I like the investigation component of my job and then meeting the person to learn ‘the rest of the story.’”
