Have you asked?

Ask most non-profit leaders what their biggest challenge is and you’ll get some permutation of needing more money or more people.

The question I’m learning to ask in these conversations is quickly becoming, “so how many people have you asked to join your team or give money to your cause in the last 90 days?”

Far too often, I hear that leaders are too busy to challenge others to join them or they hold back from passionately asking for donations.

Resource constraints are real. However, if you’re not actively doing anything about it, you’re not going to get a lot of sympathy from me.

Your cause is important. Something all you need is a little courage to invite others into helping with it.
