A nonprofit organization’s board of directors is responsible for ensuring that the organization has adequate financial resources to implement programs and services aligned with its mission. Yet, many board members take a hands-off approach to fund development because they may not know it’s their responsibility, they may be fearful of asking people to financially support the organization, or they simply may not know how to participate in the organization’s fundraising efforts. Upon completion of this interactive, hands-on workshop, nonprofit leaders will be able to:

  • Identify the specific roles board members can take in fund development
  • Identify methods for building accountability into the board’s fund development role
  • Determine ways for staff and volunteers to work together on fundraising efforts
  • Identify training and coaching that board members may need to be successful fundraisers
  • Develop an action plan to build greater board involvement in fund development
