Latest News

Did you know that people who make philanthropic gifts live longer, happier lives? And the good news is that fundraisers who facilitate those gifts enjoy the same benefits! But what’s the psychology behind why someone gives and how they make that decision? In this light and humorous (and maybe sometimes a bit irreverent) session, we’ll explore the psychology of the prospective donor, their needs, and the techniques you can use to successfully build a relationship and close a gift. Join AFP master teacher Bill Bartolini (ACFRE, Ph.D. & instructor in major gifts fundraising at Columbia University) in this entertaining and useful master class so you can Ask with Confidence.  Click to Register
