Before you send your next volunteer signup or launch your next fundraising campaign, make it easy for people to say yes. Or impossible for them to say no!
By instilling a Culture of Generosity and communicating what people are actually investing in.
For example, fundraising literally asks people to give money for a new scoreboard. But, in this example, a Culture of Generosity mindset is an invitation to invest in growing students’ physical and mental health, confidence-building, the ability to be team players, and a witness in their sportsmanship.
Development leaders should lean into the core concept of the value of tomorrow’s culture. When the ask is focused only on securing today’s transaction or “getting the gift,” it short-changes the investment in the future culture and forfeits its growth potential.
In this short video, I break down the Culture of Generosity and share a key (and simple!) way to instill this culture in your Christian school.
Don’t miss the quick (and truly EASY) tips at the end of this short video! Following these steps will help ensure that you’re cultivating a Culture of Generosity, making it easy for you to ask and for the community to say “yes” when you present a need.
