    Too often nonprofit board members shy away from fundraising. When the subject comes up, many trustees suddenly become invisible or silent. Yet it is our responsibility to set up board members in active, satisfying roles that can support the fundraising process. But we frequently make mistakes that hurt, rather than help, our cause.  Engaging board members productively in fundraising is a common challenge.  Our organizations need board members who truly embrace their role in fundraising and are engaged at an appropriate level. 

    Is your board set for fundraising success?  Do they have everything they need to help the organization meet its annual fundraising targets?  Why are some board members so nervous about fundraising? And how do we go wrong when we approach them about helping in fundraising?  

    Participants will learn how to effectively engage board members in actively fundraising for annual campaigns, capital campaigns, and operational support.  Board coaching prompts, communications plans, board members personal fundraising plans will be shared and explored.

    According to the National Council of Nonprofits, organizations that are “serious about their own sustainability will also be serious about planning for smooth and thoughtful transitions of leadership – as well as making sure their nonprofit is prepared for unexpected departures.

    Often times, the individual who might be the best fit to succeed a nonprofit leader is already employed by the organization.  Professional development is essential to foster a cadre of staff – and volunteers – who can easily step into the role of CEO or executive director should those positions become vacant.

    This webinar explores ways to enhance your organization’s stability and sustainability by grooming your successor from within.

    Backbone support is an essential component of collective impact.  A backbone is an entity that functions independently as a centralized management team for partnership efforts.  Corresponding with a growing interest in collective impact efforts, a growing number of foundations, policymakers, and practitioners endorse multi-sector partnerships and their use of a backbone support organization.  While the idea of using a backbone has gained currency, little attention has been paid to how to establish a backbone.  Instead, much of the prevailing discussion has focused on what a backbone should do after it has been formed.

    Under collective impact, backbone organizations cover six key activities:  supporting vision and strategy, supporting aligned activities, establishing shared measurements, building public will, advancing policy, and mobilizing funding. 

    This webinar delivers an overview of the backbone in supporting collective impact efforts, how to build backing for it, and its importance in keeping collective impact on track.

    Complex, systems change requires leadership from various partners: state government leaders, funding agencies, schools, hospitals, the private sector, community organizers and more.  This is where collective impact comes into play – as a method to engage partners from different sectors to solve the complex social problems of the day.  Collective impact – an approach which brings together different sectors for a common agenda to solve large multifaceted problems – can be applied to existing collaborative work to help facilitate cross-sector engagement to effectively implement their strategies to achieve their desired results. 

    Effectively applying the collective impact approach requires leadership from multiple partners – from state governments to funding agencies.  This session will assist organizations with identifying resources to help grow capacity and facilitate this cross-sector work.
