Firing Up Your Fundraising: Expanding Your Reach. Engaging Your Board.

March 19, 2019 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm

Does your board help with your fundraising? Should they? Maybe. Maybe not.

Your board is among your most powerful assets. Often board members don’t want to be involved in fundraising or they view it as someone else’s job. The result is that many board members do nothing or very little when it comes to fundraising. The outcome: You don’t reach your fundraising goals and sometimes staff becomes resentful that the board isn’t doing more to help.

Fundraising Culture Change Expert Lori L. Jacobwith knows that you and your board members require clear direction and guidance about how to engage your board. This is a session about effortlessly creating an environment where board supports your fundraising efforts so it actually feels rewarding and an integral part of their board involvement. Join Lori to learn how your board can help increase your fundraising revenue by nearly 40% and NOT have to ask anyone for a contribution.
