Engaging Your Board in Fundraising - A Staff's Guide

Board participation in fundraising is a perennial challenge for many, if not most, nonprofit organizations. This webinar approaches the issue by asking - what is keeping the staff from being more successful in engaging the board in fundraising? We'll explore barriers and misperceptions that can impede staff success in working with board members, discuss how to set up conditions so that board members are self-motivated to fundraise and friend-raise, and discuss how staff can create fundraising opportunities so that board members can easily "plug in."

As a result of this webinar participants will:

  • Understand the barriers that can keep staff from being more successful at engaging board members in fundraising;
  • Gain a better understanding of board member needs and perspectives when it comes to fundraising;
  • Learn 5 steps for engaging board members in fundraising and how this relates to the type of information, support, training, and opportunities you offer to your board members.
