October 3, 2019, 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Engage_your_Board_in_Fundraising.jpgGood Board engagement in fund development can make all the difference to the success of your fundraising program. Your board’s role is to be engaged through Time, Talent and Treasure. We will walk through the Board’s role in terms of reaching out to a broader community of donors, helping to raise your profile with the right people and increasing your organization’s credibility as a force for good in the community.

In this session we will identify the barriers to board engagement, and how they can be overcome so that your fundraising can thrive.
