The Ask: Making It Real

If you want to jump start for your gift solicitation skills or are looking to find more comfort in what often seems a daunting task, join CNL for this dynamic, interactive workshop on making The Ask.

Presenter Jennifer Litton Singer, CFRE, will guide you through small group activities dealing with real life situations.  After a brief overview of the elements of an effective request, attendees will prepare an approach for donations, major gifts and sponsorships.


  • How to use your personal story and your organizations impact to engage potential donors
  • To identify and  deal with objections specific to your organization
  • Tools and tips to create and hone an effective Ask

Jennifer is back after facilitation of the successful CNL workshop on fund development last December.  An experienced Executive Director, she helped co-found The Friendship Club in 1995. She served in several roles there and became the E.D. in 2004.  Jennifer has a degree in Communication from the University of Colorado at Boulder and  is currently working toward her  Masters in Nonprofit Management.

Don’t miss the opportunity to get the know-how and increased confidence you need to secure necessary support for your organization.
