March 21, 2018 @ 11:30 am - 1:30 pm

Most Board members understand that they have a fundraising responsibility – but the question is “where do I begin?” There are many ways to be an active and effective participant in fundraising for the nonprofit Board on which you are member. This workshop will help Board members better understand their fundraising role and will address various specific, actionable strategies for Board members to become successful fundraisers – no matter their experience and their comfort level with fundraising. NOTE: this session is offered again on April 25. Click here to view that event.

Who should attend: Nonprofit executive directors, board members, and development staff. Registration is limited to three per organization.
