Our introductory session with Jenn this past spring was so well received that we've asked her back to present her full 3-hour workshop:

Asking Without Anxiety Workshop with Jennifer Hayslett

Program Description

In this lively three-hour workshop, you will learn tips and tricks for taming your anxiety in donor conversations and practice how to reach out to your donors to more fully engage them in the life of your organization.

  • Do you find that you avoid reaching out to donors to set up meetings?
  • Do you still cringe and stumble making a direct financial request?

If you answered yes, to one or both of these questions, this workshop is for you.

This is an interactive session. Come ready to participate with your screen on. Before the workshop, you will receive some pre-work to do that will take you approximately 1 hour to complete.

This program is designed to support you in gaining confidence, being more prepared, and feeling less anxious in donor conversations. You will learn how to build relationships with donors in meaningful ways by developing your authentic curiosity and “fundraising listening skills" to help match your mission with your donors’ philanthropic goals. As part of your workshop, you will practice making a donor ask in a small supportive group.

This program is designed for development professionals, executive directors, board members and development volunteers.

Our Trainer

Highly rated and dynamic trainer, Jenn Hayslett, combines her years of leadership experience as a fundraiser in small and mid-sized nonprofits with brain-science research on best practices. She will lead you through hands-on activities designed to decrease anxiety and increase your confidence by practicing skills that are needed to involve your donors. Learn more about Jenn at
