Every member of your organization chart must be a fundraiser, but your board members must take the lead, model the behavior and be the inspiration for all.  Yet, they too often drag their feet, look the other way, beg to do anything but that, throw up every classic excuse possible.  This webinar will show you how to get your board members to eat their veggies so they, too, can reap the satisfaction of being a successful fundraiser while taking on this essential component of their job.

In one powerful hour, this webinar will share tested tips for getting disinclined board members to fulfill their fundraising responsibilities.  You will learn tactics for overcoming board members’ typical excuses – from “I hate asking people for money” to “I’m not well connected” to “I can’t ask my friends for donations because then they’ll expect me to give to all their causes,” and so many more.  You will learn ways to show board members how, in addition to participating in the cultivation and solicitation processes, they can be effective in other aspects of the fundraising continuum, such as thanking donors, communicating their personal passion for the mission, identifying prospects and making introductions, and understanding and supporting the organization’s various development activities.
