The Asking Rights Assessment is an entry-level step into the process of learning how to build a foundation to successfully ask for large investments in your nonprofit. It’s a quick, low-cost option that offers individual attention and customized feedback.
The assessment draws on your preparedness in the three pivotal areas of Credibility, Fundraising Skills, and Outcomes. This assessment is based on the central concepts presented in the book Asking Rights, written by Tom Ralser, Convergent Nonprofit Solutions Principal. Your responses are reviewed by our staff of nonprofit fundraising experts. This culminates in a Reality Check that is scored and compared to our database of hundreds of organizations that have successfully raised hundreds of millions of dollars. Your customized summary report will be walked through with you on the phone and will contain an honest assessment of your ability to capitalize on the outcomes you deliver and generate sustainable funding.
This assessment can give you an idea of whether you are ready to successfully launch a large-scale fundraising campaign or need to build up your nonprofit organization’s foundation before asking for the funding you seek.
