“In my family money was never just about money. It was about survival. It was about stability. – Rhea Wong

Episode #34

Overview

In this episode of What the Fundraising Podcast…

I talk to Rhea Wong, a nonprofit leader with 20 years of experience inside the sector. She currently supports Executive Directors and development staff to build out individual major gift programs and raise money like a pro.

There is a common limiting belief that people get offended when you ask them for money, but we need to learn that fundraising is not about extraction, and these narratives just arent true. If we are transparent and we truly understand the value of our cause and what it can represent to the potential donor’s values and desires, then fundraising starts to feel transformational and supportive. As the power partners mantra always reminds us – great fundraising is not an ask, it’s an offer.

We dismantle some of the most common biases inside the fundraiser’s mindset when it comes to money and the risk of rejection. Rhea has some interesting takeaways to go beyond your pre-established money beliefs and become a successful fundraiser. 

“When our standard of expectation is perfection, of course, you’re not going to do it. Of course it’s going to feel anxiety-inducing”. But we’re here to tell you that it’s not about being perfect at all, there are some underlying values and relationship-building skills to focus on, but the rest is about responding to the moment and the alignment with your donor. 

Join in and learn how to ask the right questions to nurture the relationships with your potential partners.
