31 Questions To Ask Donors

Knowing how to ask the right questions is an essential skill — one that can translate to success in all areas of your career and life. Good questions are the key to getting the kind of valuable information you need from a donor interview to write engaging, inspiring stories.

But sometimes, it can be a real struggle to generate a list of high-quality questions to ask donors. How do you get donors or prospects to open up about their lives, their gifts, and their passion for your mission?

  • What do you ask?
  • Which questions are relevant?
  • Which questions are appropriate?
  • Which questions cross the line?
  • What do you do if a subject isn’t talkative?
