Fundraising MV: 3 Ways To Empower Your Board to Fundraise 

Tuesday April 26th, 2022 at 12pm

An essential part of a board’s governance duties is to ensure that their organization is financially sustainable and has access to funding. Yet, according to BoardSource’s Leading with Intent report, fundraising is probably one of –if not THE--biggest priorities of any nonprofit yet it is the #1 cause of stress by both CEOs and Boards across the country.  

Learn the three top ways to help boards feel more comfortable with building donor relationships. Learning objectives we will cover: 

1. How to identify the right board composition for your organization

2. Key ways to use a board orientation that empowers board members for fundraising success 

3. Ideas on creating a fundraising menu of activities and commitments that are right sized for each board member
