Fundraising Training for Board Members... April 12

A key factor in a nonprofit's success is the board's participation in fundraising. And yet, studies show that fewer than half of the organizations surveyed had board members strongly participating in donor identification and prospecting (48 percent), asking for gifts (42 percent), and donor cultivation (41 percent). Board members have a passion for the mission, but too often are frustrated when they are told to help with fundraising, and are not equipped to be successful. They are told what to do, but lack the tools and the confidence to be effective. We have good news...this special board training event will focus on the "How to" areas that every board member needs. In our time together, we'll give you the time-tested tools, talking points and practical application to be effective in fundraising regardless of your personality type. This is a don't-miss opportunity that will make a big difference in your board's effectiveness in fulfilling their responsibilities for helping to fund the mission. Here are some highlights of what we'll be covering:
  • The Biblical basis for fundraising
  • Where the money is in the community to fund your mission
  • How every personality type can have a role and be successful in fundraising
  • The easy way to identify potential donors
  • How cultivating fundraising relationships work
  • The Fundraising Toolkit
  • Asking Made Easy (Very Easy)
  • ...and much more
