The Great Paradox: The Board and its Fundraising Role
President, Momentum, LLC
About the Program
It’s one of the worst-kept secrets around. Yet it’s very common.
Many nonprofits face the same ongoing struggle to find the right fundraising strategy for board members. While most everyone agrees that the board needs to play some kind of role in the bottom line, the harsh truth is that this fact doesn’t mean board members will automatically enjoy fundraising —or even be very good at it.
How to use the passion of board members to raise money for the organization? What’s the best way to establish and monitor board giving policies? How can staff and board members work together for the overall fiscal health of the organization?
Our workshop will cover it all. Based on true stories from the field, Deirdre Maloney will provide a practical framework and real-life tips on how to create and execute a fundraising strategy for the board—one that creates energy and eases the tension for all involved.
