From the provider:

Writing a compelling fundraising letter can be tricky. It’s not the same kind of writing as a brochure, annual report or grant proposal. But it’s not rocket science – it’s something you can easily learn. It’s just not something most of us are taught.

In this webinar you’ll learn the art of taking your appeal from run of the mill to… out of the ballpark. From anesthetizing to… astounding. From colorless to… captivating. Whether you’re an old pro and just want some new tips, or you’re writing your appeal letter for the first time, you’ll find killer strategies and tried-and- true tactics to get your appeal to the next level.

Your appeal letter should be an “offer” to join you in something amazing and transformative. Want your offer to be one your donor simply cannot refuse? Learn to make giving to you a no-brainer for your donors – and as easy as pie (don’t you love pie)?
