How to Persuade Someone to Donate to Your Catholic Apostolate

Hello faithful Catholic,

Today, I want to discuss with you the topic of persuasion.

How do you persuade some to donate?

I picked this topic because several people this week have asked me this question. The definition of ‘persuade’ is to MOVE by argument, request, or expostulation to a belief, position, or course of action.

Therefore, in the case of fundraising, we want to know how to “move by request to a course of action.”

Here are my thoughts on how to persuade someone to donate:

Brice was born and raised Catholic. After enjoying a successful career in technology consulting with Accenture and PriceWaterhouseCoopers in cities across the United States (Dallas, San Francisco, Paris, Abu Dhabi, and London) around the world, he left it to help his Catholic diocese in London, England with a fundraising campaign. The campaign went on to raise over $60 million, the largest sum ever raised for the diocese and in the United Kingdom.

Learning from professional fundraisers, he figured out the basics and then left the diocese to focus on what he loves most: building Catholic charities that change the culture, save lives, and save souls.

Brice currently lives in Texas and travels the world helping Catholics fundraise. This website is where he shares what he is doing and how he is raising funds for Catholic causes and missions. That way you can move more quickly with your next appeal.
