Webinar: Fire Up your Board About Fundraising

Posted by La Salle Nonprofit Center on September 17, 2018

In this new 60-minute webinar, a seasoned fundraiser shares tested tips for getting a reluctant board to fulfill its fundraising responsibilities. Learn how to overcome the typical concerns board members offer as excuses – from “I hate asking people for money” to “I’m not well connected,” to “I can’t ask my friends for donations because then they’ll expect me to give to all their causes,” and so many more.

You’ll learn ways to demonstrate to board members how, in addition to participating in the cultivation and solicitation processes, they can be effective in other aspects of the fundraising continuum, including thanking donors, communicating their personal passion for your mission, identifying prospects and making introductions, understanding and supporting the organization’s various development activities. You can help your Board overcome their fear and reluctance.

Every board has the potential to be part of a successful fundraising partnership of board, executive and development team, with each party understanding and embracing their specific roles. It’s time to transform your board into one that embraces fundraising as an essential component of its job.
