The Art and Science of
"Making the Ask"

Thursday, October 8, 2015, 10 am - Noon

Does the thought of asking someone for money, even for a worthy cause, make you nervous and uncomfortable? With knowledge and a little practice, you too can be comfortable "making the ask." According to the Camber Collective report Money for Good 2015, opportunities worth $47 billion exist to increase and shift charitable giving to nonprofit organizations. How can your organization claim a piece of this pie? By asking for it!

Led by Shaké Sulikyan, this TVNPA interactive workshop features how to solicit donors successfully while seeking funding to support an organization's programs and services. You will leave ready to "make the ask" and claim your piece of that $47-billion pie!

Shaké Sulikyan is an experienced fundraising consultant who helps nonprofit organizations to raise funds as they strive to carry out their missions. She has served as the Senior Director of Annual Giving at Harvard Medical School (Boston, MA), overseeing a multifaceted annual giving program that raised over $4 million per year. Her 15-year career as a fundraiser has included roles at colleges and social service agencies in the Boston region. Shaké also has a longstanding career as a volunteer for multiple organizations. She has led workshops and training sessions for fundraising professionals and has served on the Board of Women in Development of Greater Boston. Shaké is the immediate past President of the Clark University Alumni Association and now volunteers for the Valley Children's Museum in Dublin. She currently resides in Livermore with her husband and young son.
