Program Title: 
The Formula vs. The Art of ’The Ask’

How does one become comfortable asking for gifts? 

How do you prioritize ’asking’ versus ’the other tasks’ we must do?

Is it a myth that there is a *formula* for when is the appropriate time to make ’The Ask’ and is this myth intimidating to development professionals?
