Building a Fundraising Board

Is your nonprofit struggling to secure donations from your board of directors? Are you having a tough time getting them to open doors to potential donors, funders, and partners? Listen to this highly practical, tactical episode where our dynamic presenter will share concrete tips and tools designed to help your organization get more dollars in the door.

Learn how to engage your board in a process that clarifies exactly what’s expected of each member, creates consensus around board expansion priorities, that completely transform your board meetings and make better use of everyone’s time, and that helps gracefully transition off the “dead weight”.

You'll learn:

  • How to transition legacy inactive or “working” board members into engaged fundraisers
  • How to ensure that all incoming and existing trustees know exactly what’s expected of them
  • How to get your board into lockstep around your top 3-5 recruitment priorities
  • An easy-to-implement tip for moving board meetings from boring updates to dynamic discussions
