How to Deal With Objections
Curious about the reason for the objection.
- Is it the cause?
- Is it the organization?
- Is it the project?
- Is it the amount requested?
- Is it the timing?
- Is it you?
When the fundraiser learns from the donor where the hesitation or objection is really coming from, she/he can gently work through it with the donor. So, as you hear an objection, try to figure out which of these reasons apply to your situation.
