Are your board members not getting out to cultivate relationships and ask for gifts?

Do you find it difficult to get your board to understand its role in “giving and getting”?

We can help… Just in time for the fall are our highly praised Fundraising 101 webinars, designed to give your board members a fuller understanding of how they can best impact their organization and feel more empowered to go out and help.

Your board members don’t have to attend the same webinar! We have 4 separate dates they can choose at their convenience.

Webinars take place February 27th, 28th and March 1st. Watch a preview for this webinar!

This webinar sparked conversation with the board members on coming together to build strategy and rank priorities – key to moving forward!

I think it will help support stronger board engagement in fund development at our Council. As a staff person, these resources are invaluable!

What your board members will learn:

  • Why it’s so important every member make a personally significant gift based on his or her capacity.
  • How a strong board manages board solicitation and incorporates that into an annual review process of each board member.
  • A stronger understanding of the asking process and how to make a case for support that plays to their strengths.
  • Why every board member must be involved in fundraising even though they might not ask for gifts face-to-face, but everyone can play a role in identifying and cultivating prospects and asking someone for something (in-kind, participation, connections).
  • Which prospects are the best match.
  • Everyone can be effective asking for gifts. The Asking Styles will help them understand the strengths they bring to the table and how to apply them to asking.
  • A basic system through which they can have rich dialogs with each other about resource development.

Your board members don’t have to attend the same webinar! We have 3 separate dates they can choose at their convenience.
