Getting the board to fundraise can be a very challenging experience even when board members recognize that a primary responsibility of any nonprofit board is ensuring that the organization has the resources it needs to meet its mission.

Meeting this responsibility can involve many things, including: ensuring that there is a viable development plan in place; partnering with staff to meet annual fundraising goals; helping to identify and cultivate potential donors; owning their responsibility to act as ambassadors for the organization; making a personal gift; soliciting donations from their extended personal universe; and helping to create and maintain a culture of philanthropy throughout the organization.

This interactive workshop offers ample time to discuss specific individual challenges, help participants identify the dynamics of effective fundraising, discuss ways to overcome resistance and examine how their own relationship to money influences their ability fundraise.

In this workshop, participants will explore:

  • Instituting “Give/Get” policies;

  • Requiring 100% board giving;

  • Transitioning from a programmatically focused board to a fundraising board;

  • How to establish and communicate fundraising expectations to current and new board members; and

  • Enhancing the board’s capacity to fundraise.

Target Audience: Board Members, Executive Directors, & Senior development and strategy officers who work on developing board effectiveness
