The Board Member’s Guide to Raising & Managing Money
Mobilize Your Board: Better Ambassadors Raise More Money
If your board isn’t raising all the money it could — indeed, if your board isn’t raising any money at all — you’re not alone. In this workshop, we’ll discuss the reasons why, and outline strategies to turn things around. You’ll leave with several practical, specific ideas for increasing board engagement, effectiveness, and outreach to your community.
• How to be a better ambassador (listen more, talk less)
• Redefining fundraising: It’s not just asking for money
• Building a board fundraising menu
• Helping board members take leadership and hold each other accountable
This is an interactive workshop, so come prepared to participate!
