Engage Your Board in Fundraising
In the small shop, fundraising can be a big job. Having a Board that is involved in raising money can make a huge impact and help you raise hundreds of thousands more than you can do alone. Unfortunately, many nonprofit organizations struggle with Boards that are well-meaning but reluctant and inexperienced in fundraising. In this training, we'll uncover the reasons why Board members won't help with fundraising and how to overcome them. You'll learn how to match up the right fundraising activities with the right Board members, and how to give them the tools, skills, and knowledge they need to succeed. You'll get tips for holding them accountable and for providing them the support they need so they can help you raise big money.
At the conclusion of this session, participants will:
- Understand why Board members shy away from fundraising.
- Know the tools, skills, and knowledge Board members need to be successful, and how to provide them.
- Identify the 4 steps elements of engaging Board members in fundraising, and how to work with them regularly.
- Have a clear idea of what to do next to move their Board in the right direction.
