Seeding Success: Cultivating Your Board to Grow Your Funding - April Education Session

About the Event

The partnership between Board Members and the Development team is crucial to your team’s fundraising success. How can you empower your board members as active participants and passionate supporters in your organization's fundraising?

In this session, we’ll discuss how you, the fundraiser, can set clear expectations, establish effective systems, and celebrate victories with your board members. We’ll delve into strategies, best practices, and approaches that will allow you to build stronger partnerships between the Board and Development team.


Bring a copy of your current board list to work with during this session.

Mitzi Keel, Development Director  - All-In Milwaukee

Mitzi has more than 15 years of non-profit operations and fundraising experience. After graduating from the University of Kansas, she found a true passion for working behind the scenes at Teach For America, which brought her to Milwaukee, where she has committed to supporting the organizations that benefit the future of this community, including TFA-Milwaukee, Schools That Can Milwaukee, The Drexel Fund, and currently at All-In Milwaukee. She is bolstered by the belief that every person deserves the opportunity to live a whole and fruitful life, and her work is now focused on supporting a journey that many don’t get to take – to complete college, build careers, and become transformational leaders that Milwaukee deserves.
