Soliciting support is about more than asking for a donation of goods or services, it's about making a connection.
Explain your mission. People don’t give to organizations; they give to people and causes. Make sure your donors know what their donation is going towards.
Make it personal. If you send a letter, sign it. If you send an email, include pictures of projects or events. If you call donors, tell them a success story.
