Episode 11 of The Philanthropy Podcast is up with 70 high impact questions to guide your conversations with benefactors and prospects in order to have more meaningful conversations and be prepared to suggest more impactful gifts for benefactors and your organization!

Plus, a way to receive these questions in an easy to listen mp3 format to use on your way to visits.

A little late this week, but with episode 10 of The Philanthropy Podcast I get to talk about one of my favorite parts of my job, high impact questions!

When people say "I could never ask for money" I think what they don't realize is that leading up to an ask, I've (usually) had multiple conversations filled with these questions and I've created an ask that lines up with what I've heard from the donor. That's why most asks are something that both the donor and I are excited ab...out by that point.

This concept is useful beyond just fundraising to any job where you interact with people in a meaningful way. I cover knowing what high impact questions are, how to use them, but most importantly, why they're so important and how using them well can be a huge part of how we bring value to the benefactors with whom we work.

I list a few high impact questions that I find useful and on Monday I'll be back with an episode that lists far more and goes into depth of when and how I like to use them.

I'm really glad to have a great interview with Pete about his work in the development office at Misericordia, Heart of Mercy on this week's episode. Just one of the many incredible people who make such an amazing mission come to life.
