Building a Confident Fundraising Board, Part 2: Putting the Plan to Work


May 21, 2014
09:00 AM until 12:00 PM


We all know that boards are supposed to raise money. Some boards do this well, but for many organizations, the board’s involvement in development is highly theoretical – and a source of significant embarrassment, tension, and, in some cases, organizational financial failure.

This two-part series is designed to help nonprofit executives and board leaders conquer their fears, focus their energies, and become effective at this critically important task. And – the big secret:  participants will learn that fundraising can be fun.

These sessions are chock full of:

  • practical tips to demystify fundraising
  • creative tools you can use
  • ways to boost confidence in “making the ask”

Part II:  Putting the Plan to Work
Wednesday, May 21

The thought of asking for money need not be stressful if you have the right mindset. You are giving donors an opportunity to participate in something meaningful and rewarding.

In this session we’ll explore:

  • Using your development time effectively and efficiently
  • Cultivating relationships with major donors
  • Carrying out effective donor stewardship
  • How annual campaigns, planned giving, bequests and capital campaigns fit together
  • Telling your story to donors
  • Making a donor “ask”
