Do you know what your donors are thinking? What questions do you need to ask—and anticipate—to find out? How can you use better questions to raise more money, now and in the future? As environmental educators, we are all looking for additional funding to support our work, and in this eeWEBINAR, you'll find out that a key to successful fundraising is asking smarter questions before, during, and after your interactions with donors.

This eeWEBINAR is based on Harvey's bestselling book, 11 Questions Every Donor Asks and the Answers All Donors Crave, plus an article written by Andy and Harvey, "After the Yes: 12 Questions You Can Ask Donors After They Say Yes." Smarter questions are essential for every kind of fundraising from digital to major gifts.
