What are some suggestions for soliciting donations?

I am not very good at asking people for money.

Make sure you can talk for at least 10 minutes straight about what you are collecting money for. You need to be able to convince people that you are trustworthy, try explaining what the money will be used for. Make sure to introduce yourself and smile!

When soliciting donations, it is essential that you let the potential donor know the worthiness of the cause. It helps to do something to merit the donation. For example, a "free" car wash for donations will be more effective than simply asking for cash. If the donation is tax deductible, be sure to mention that as well.

The hardest part of securing donations is just asking! To start simply draft a simple letter explaining what you are asking for and why.
