Asking for funding can be uncomfortable for anyone if they don’t know the right ways to ask, but that’s why Tailored Fundraising is here to help. When fundraising, you might make phone calls to 10 different people in one afternoon and be lucky to have 4 of them answer (or call you back). This is normal, and they best way to receive results is to stay persistent.

The scariest part of fundraising for so many people is just one little question, asked a few different ways. This one question can terrify people and make fundraising feel like a massive, unclimbable mountain.

You aren’t alone! This is totally normal. There’s an extremely important reason for this fear.
