How to Get Your Board Fundraising Webinar

By Nell Edgington

It is probably the single biggest complaint I hear from nonprofit executive directors, “I can’t get my board to fundraise!”

As a general rule nonprofit boards of directors are not very helpful at bringing money in the door. It is often a chicken or the egg scenario that leaves many nonprofits at an impasse. But I believe it is up to the executive director to get strategic about getting her board to take action. I’ve talked a lot about this in the 9 Ways Board Members Can Raise Money Without Fundraising blog posts here and here.

If you want to really get your board moving, the¬†webinar “How to Build a Fundraising Board” shows you how.

This webinar will give you very tactical steps for how to:

  • Set up a structure for effective board involvement in fundraising
  • Get every board member raising money
  • Create a compelling fundraising message for the board to deliver
  • Develop a system for moving prospects to donors
  • Give every board member a job
  • Overcome board fear and inertia

Boards need to step up. There is no doubt. But it is up to the executive director to make sure that they do. By getting your board to be strategic, focused, invested, integrated and aware, they can start helping to finance your work. This webinar will help you get your board members excited, engaged and committed to raising money for your nonprofit.
