Boards and Fundraising: Why doesn’t your board fundraise?

Target audience: New to the profession; Mid-Level; Senior/Advanced and General Interest

Presented by:
Michael Davidson
Board Coach

It is well accepted that board membership carries with it the responsibility to actively engage in fundraising. It is nonetheless a continual challenge for every organization to motivate that engagement. There are two fundamental barriers, either of which may the impediment for your board:
• They don’t really care enough
• They are too anxious

This program will address three questions, the answers to which can help to meet this challenge. 
• Why would board members want to fundraise?
• Why do they resist fundraising?
• How can board fundraising engagement be structured to minimize resistance and lead to maximum value?
