Coming Up Dec. 2: Growing Resiliency Nonprofit Strengthening Webinar Series Part 4: Your Board and Fundraising
In this Fourth Installment of our Nonprofit Strengthening Virtual Training Series, we feature a VIRTUAL LIVE WORKSHOP by Candid: “Your Board and Fundraising”!
Workshop Description: While engaging board members in fundraising is something that often proves challenging to many Executive Directors and Development Professionals, this hands-on workshop will help attendees learn:
- The role of your board, including fundraising responsibilities;
- Why some board members may be reluctant to fundraise and how to overcome these concerns;
- Ways your board can participate in fundraising activities, including online fundraising;
- Tips for strengthening your FUNDRAISING BOARD!
Materials will include such sample handouts as:
- Board job description;
- Board contract;
- Board audit.
At the end of the training, attendees will have a better understanding of:
- How build fundraising as an expectation/role/responsibility for existing and incoming board members;
- How to help your board to fundraise;
- How to better recruit and orient board members to your organization;
- How to ensure 100% board participation in Kern County’s Online Day of Giving, Give Big Kern, which will take place Tuesday, May 4, 2021.
This training is ideal for Executive Directors, Development Directors, Board Members and Potential Board Members.
