Nonprofit board members have the potential to be some of the most helpful ambassadors for your cause, the most loyal and generous donors, and the most effective fundraisers, but in order to maximize their potential it’s critical to recruit the right members, set proper expectations, and instill a true sense of ownership over the organization’s work.
Many nonprofits struggle with this, but thankfully our veteran presenter has decades of experience implementing best practices that are proven to maximize donations from your board and ensure 100% participation, while also enlisting them to open doors to potential donors, funders, and partners.
Learn how to engage your board in a process that clarifies exactly what’s expected of each member—especially as it relates to donating and fundraising— that creates consensus around board expansion priorities, and that completely transforms board meetings and makes better use of everyone’s time.
We will also cover the critical importance of thinking of your board members and other loyal donors not as ATMs, but as investors and true partners in your impact and work, and share tools for helping to integrate this philosophy successfully.
Finally, we will provide tips and templates that can help you gracefully transition off the “dead weight”, while ensuring that every active member of the board clearly understands their role in fundraising, whether it’s as an Ambassador, an Advocate, or an Asker.
We invite board members, nonprofit executive directors, and development staff to participate in this exciting educational opportunity.
The program will be led by former Craigslist Foundation executive director and best-selling author of Nonprofit Fundraising 101 and Nonprofit Management 101 (now in 2nd edition), Darian Rodriguez Heyman.
