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.
