Staff and Volunteer Training Print E-mail
Only a small percentage of institutions have full time development staff dedicated to creating gift support. The role of "Development Director" is still a relatively new one, so there is some misunderstanding among teaching staff and institutional leadership on the crucial importance of this role. There are very few seasoned professionals to serve in a mentor capacity. As a result, volunteers are also inexperienced, as they have not had the opportunity to work with Development professionals who could coach them.
All of the consultants of ASK Associates have been full-time directors of development in schools and/or colleges and universities, so we understand the complex nature of the job and the many responsibilities and skills that such a function requires. Providing a Director of Development has a good grasp of the nature of his/her institution, the willingness to learn and the capacity for hard work, he or she can benefit from the guidance and training that ASK Associates can provide. Specifically, we can:
  • Assess the existing programme and recommend strategies for increasing fundraising revenue;
  • Provide training in development planning;
  • Help you be more effective in your communications with alumni;
  • Provide solicitation training;
  • Guide institutional leadership who speak before constituents;
  • Create job descriptions for staff and volunteer leaders;
  • Help motivate institutional leadership regarding their continuing role in development.
