Unlock Your Board’s Fundraising Strengths
July 27 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
Higher board member engagement in fundraising is achievable. Research findings show that when board members 1) have a better understanding of their strengths, 2) can express their own story about the organization’s impact and 3) are able to deepen their relationship to the organization’s mission, they are more willing to engage and use their unique skills and capabilities to build relationships and influence.
To be successful at improving engagement, organizational leaders need to understand and know how to position their board’s unique fundraising strengths. During this interactive workshop, participants will be able to build a common language with their board about fundraising, understand where they might focus future efforts to increase board activity, and learn how to align board member strengths to the organization’s fundraising efforts.
