Not many of us could honestly say that our board is ecstatic about fundraising. Board reluctance to fundraise is a common lament and the motivation for this webinar. A veteran fundraiser, who has heard every board excuse, shares her tested tips for getting a disinclined board to fulfill its fundraising responsibilities. Learn how to overcome the typical concerns board members offer as 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’ll learn ways to demonstrate to board members how, in addition to participating in the cultivation and solicitation processes, they can be effective in other aspects of the fundraising continuum, including thanking donors, communicating their personal passion for your mission, identifying prospects and making introductions, and understanding and supporting the organization’s various development activities.

Help your board overcome its resistance. Every board has the potential to be part of a successful fundraising partnership of board, executive and development team, with each party understanding and embracing their specific roles. It’s time to transform your board into one that accepts fundraising as an essential component of its job.
