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.
