Webinar: Getting Your Board to Raise Money

By Nell Edgington

Getting Your Board to Raise MoneyAh, the nonprofit board of directors. That much disparaged group of volunteers who must often be begged, cajoled, or guilted into raising money for the nonprofit they serve.

But it doesn’t have to be that way.

If you can recruit the right people, get very specific about the skills they bring, and work with them to put their assets to use for your nonprofit, you can get even the most fundraising-shy board member to start bringing money in the door.

The How to Build a Fundraising Board webinar will show you how to:

  • Excite and engage the board in bringing money in the door
  • Put every single board member to their highest and best use
  • Set up a structure for effective board involvement in raising money
  • Give you creative jobs for fundraising-shy board members
  • Set up systems for tracking and rewarding board involvement
  • Overcome board fear and inertia

This is one of our most popular webinars, and each time I’ve offered it, it sells out. Here’s what some past participants in this webinar had to say:

“This was one of the best and most helpful and informative webinars I’ve been on. It was exactly what I was looking for in terms of beginning to get our board energized and on track and I will use the slides
to help me prepare for our upcoming board retreat.”

“The webinar was very concrete and actionable – gave specific suggestions regarding
engaging board members. This was very useful. Well done.”

“This really opened my eyes to new possibilities – thank you so much!”
