Why Are You Asking?

Don’t ask because you hope to get;

Ask because you hope to give.


Don’t ask because performance metrics insist that you must;

Ask because your passion for mission yearns to be shared.


Don’t ask because you have needs;

Ask because you have a plan to meet needs.


Don’t ask because you’ve completed the case for support;

Ask because you understand their case for giving.


Don’t ask people to give because you want their money;

Ask people to give because you want them to experience joy.
