The phone is the most powerful tool you own
Have you ever asked yourself how phone calls made by a professional fundraising firm can possibly be as good as those made by your own staff? Should you still be making calls during the COVID pandemic? How can I possibly find the time to call my donors on top of everything else I have to do?
Listen to this podcast with Joe Tumolo of Gift Planning Development and Anthony Alonso of Catapult Fundraising to hear HOW outside firms get incredible results and WHY your organization MUST make calls, whether you personally pick up the phone or partner with an outside firm.

"I often state that development work is like cranking a “Jack-In-The-Box.” You are working consistently, but your Executive Director, Board of Directors and even your development team, don’t immediately see the results. Most of the time it is just unseen work… until all of that cranking finally pays off."
