Even better, let’s exceed your fundraising targets!

You have a mission to spread the Gospel, and you want to boost this mission with donations.

With that in mind, I want to share how I think you will find donors in 2022. My approach is simple, easy to execute, and works. Check it out:

3 Successful Ways to Fundraise in the New Year

If you watched my introduction video to my Catholic Fundraising Mentoring Program, you know that I outline who to ask for donations.

However, I do get follow-up questions like this one:

“Who should you target with your fundraising, older or younger people?”

Younger people can donate for many decades.

Older people, however, tend to donate in higher sums.

So does this mean you should go for one and not the other? I outline my thoughts on this subject:

I choose the title Pray, Pray, Pray, Ask because of the four different forms of prayer the Catechism talks about: Blessing, Intercession, Thanksgiving, and Petition. When we think of fundraising for a Catholic apostolate, we immediately think of asking, otherwise known as a petition.

Like a petition, a donation request is asking for help.

I was inspired by the Catechism because a great and inspirational petition can only happen when you also perform the other three prayers: thanking people, helping people, and acknowledging people for who they are.

The book is designed to go into specific detail about solving many of the problems Catholic face when fundraising by using the Catechism’s approach for how we pray. I make the analogy that asking people for funds is analogous to asking God for specific things or graces in our life. The Catechism teaches us how to form a proper petition to God which helps us also form a proper gift request to people. I know this because I’ve used it in my own fundraising with great success. This happens because I am more genuine and Catholic with how I approach the subject of money with people.

Now the question is this: will you continue to assume how to fundraise and use outdated tactics that distract you from your mission? Or are you ready to learn how to fundraise in the context of your Catholic faith?
