Effective Fundraising with the Help of Your Board

Wed 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM
Topic: Nonprofit

Do you have a working board? Most non-profits say ‘no’. Do you want a working board? All non-profits say ‘yes’. As non-profit development staff are faced with the challenge of engaging board members to assist with development efforts, they are often met with resistance and frustration. As with all fundraising, engaging in conversations and learning about those you work with is key. Learn some of the pitfalls to avoid in beginning to ask for your board’s help in development as well as the steps you can take to have more participation from your board members in all aspects of development work. Join us for this 3 hour workshop to discuss board relations, board education, and how to begin to build the foundations for a working board that will help your non-profit grow for good. At the end of this session, you will be able to: • Understand the many potential roles board members can play in development/fundraising • Learn how to identify strength/weaknesses of current and potential board members around fundraising and development priorities • Develop strategies to generate actions from your board members • Identify key steps to moving your board forward and creating a culture of support for development efforts
