Does your board know you need fundraising help, are committed to a give/get, and yet struggle to make an ask? It is time to reframe what you are asking them to do. This workshop will redefine your board’s role in the fundraising process, lessen the intimidation factor, and provide tips and tools to engage them in essential fundraising needs for your organization without ever asking for a dime. In turn, you will enlist their support in the cultivation process and be poised to develop an even more substantial pipeline of donors than before. We recommend two members join from each organization, ideally with one from the board. This workshop is suitable for executive and managing directors, board members, and development directors.
