Give your Board of Directors, CEO, and Development Staff the Art of Bold Asking®, a Training Program to Elevate Philanthropy and Create Powerful Partnerships for Transformational Giving

Real-life experience. Practical help.

Philanthropy in the United States continues at an all-time high.  Enormous opportunity exists for philanthropy, but every year organizations struggle to achieve their potential for one simple reason: they fail to effectively partner, engage and ask.

Based on decades of experience, Bold Asking® is a training program of Vision Philanthropy Group, expert fundraising consultants.  The customized interactive workshops and retreats, small group training and one-on-one coaching program, are designed to give your board, CEO, executive team and development staff the tools they need to become highly effective partners in major gift fundraising and transformational philanthropy. 

The Bold Asking® training program demystifies the major gift fundraising process.  It shares principles of transformative philanthropy and the best practices of highly-effective boards, CEOs, and development professionals across the country who are engaging new donors and elevating philanthropy.

Vision Philanthropy Group consultants are specialists in transformational giving, with expertise in health care, education and related philanthropies.


“VPG breaks through the uncertainty and intimidation of asking for philanthropic contributions. In our training, Susan provided clear, straightforward advice and specific language to empower our board and staff. She laid out a framework, but also provided room to tailor the conversation to fit each person’s individual style. Within the first thirty minutes of our training, I went from feeling awkward about asking for contributions to our nonprofit organization to being confident about telling our story and excited to share my passion. I highly recommend VPG’s “Bold Asking” coaching to anyone involved in development as a board member, fundraiser, or nonprofit professional.” -- Suzannah Gill, Esq., Our House, Board member
