What is a Fundraising Ambassador?

ambassador [amˈbasədər] NOUN 

  1. an accredited diplomat sent by a country as its official representative to a foreign country.
  2. a person who acts as a representative or promoter of a specified activity. "He is a good ambassador for the industry"

It takes more than an auction license to raise money.  It takes passion, life experience, and a gift with words that create a giving atmosphere. We are all the sum of that which we have experienced.  A true Fundraising Ambassador is a professional who can embrace your mission and convey its importance to guests in a way that opens their wallets to your need.  A Fundraising Ambassador is an advocate for you and your mission.  A Fundraising Ambassador ignites generosity and creates, in the guest's heart, an intense desire to give.  

Logic makes you think, but emotion makes you act.  At Parker Fundraising Services, our ambassadors have studied the art and the science of philanthropy and understand donor motivations and psychology.  We have been trained in the art of wordsmithing that kindles the giving emotions in a guest's heart.  If you want to raise more, retain a Parker Fundraising Ambassador!
