In Charlotte for one day only!

NOVEMBER 14th 7:30-11:30 am 

Continental Breakfast served


201 South McDowell Street, Charlotte, NC, 28204


Valerie M. Jones, CFRE, has raised $175+ million, addressed audiences from Baltimore to Beijing and coached more than 5,000 leaders to ask authentically, comfortably and successfully for their causes. In addition to running her boutique consulting firm, she volunteers extensively, serving nonprofits as president, chair, board member, and committee member. Amazon named her book, Nonprofit Hero, one of its Top Ten New Releases for Nonprofits.


Her method works. Trained boards report they’re more comfortable and willing to fundraise, intend to ask for bigger gifts and contact prospects sooner. Funny, memorable and eminently pragmatic, you’ll remember key points long after the training’s over.

Attendees will learn how to:

  • Honor their fears. Surprisingly, these contain their personal prescription for success.

  • Follow five easy steps, starting with thanking, not asking, and with donors, not prospects.

  • Cast themselves as stars, finding the steps they’ll most enjoy and at which they’ll excel.

  • Discover their asking personality, including how they should and shouldn’t ask.

  • Get in the right frame of mind to show up ready for “yes,” not braced for “no.”
