Governing Effectively while Engaging the Board in Meaningful Fundraising
Monday, March 25, 2019
Presenter: Barbara Paxton, Chief Program Officer, Governance Matters
You want to assure that your nonprofit has the volunteer leadership and the financial resources necessary to carry out its mission. The board has a lot on its plate and needs to exercise responsible oversight while also doing what it can to raise money. This includes preparing a fund development plan, motivating board members to be active in fund development, clarifying board and staff roles, and have a working understanding of applicable fundraising rules and regulations. This session will demonstrate how to use the personal, professional and resource networks of your board to build a culture of philanthropy across your organization… and have fun while doing it!
This workshop is part of Governance Matters’ monthly training series, Practical Solutions for Today’s Nonprofit Governance Challenges. These sessions cover some of the most challenging aspects of nonprofit board governance, such as defining the expectations of board service, building leadership, improving fundraising strategies and engaging in meaningful strategic planning. Both board members and staff are encouraged to attend, and are welcome to attend one, several or all of the sessions.
