Is your board raising all the money it could?

If you answered "no", you aren't alone. Have you ever wondered how you can harness your board members' passion for the cause and channel it into productive fundraising activities? Are you a board member who feels anxious about meeting fundraising expectations or intimidated by asking others for money? Join us to learn there's a lot more to fundraising than just "the ask".


We will discuss the reasons why board members are hesitant to raise money and will outline strategies to turn things around. You will leave with several practical, specific ideas for increasing board involvement and effectiveness.

Come and learn:

  • Why most board members resist fundraising
  • 50 ways your board members can bring in the bucks
  • How to train and motivate your board
  • How to use the board to identify and solicit big gifts face to face, through the mail, and at house parties
  • How to create and use board "job descriptions" to recruit willing fundraisers

Board and staff members alike will find value in this training. We encourage multiple people from each organization to join us to learn how to fundraise together as a team.
