Keynote Speaker Gail Perry "Fire Up Your Board for Fundraising: Turn Their Passion into Action"

When:  Apr 25, 2019 from 8:30 AM to 3:30 PM (ET)
How much could you raise if your board members were fully behind fundraising? International consultant and author Gail Perry shares her secrets to igniting your board's passion, changing their mindset about fundraising and setting them to work in easy roles that will directly impact the bottom line. Gail will show you how to make the fundraising process less intimidating and how to empower your board members to be in action engaging donors for the cause. You'll discover practical new ways to engage your board and get the most out of your board members.

In this workshop, we will practice our messaging skills, and learn how board members can open the door to a donor without being pushy. We'll discuss the most effective and efficient fundraising strategies for today, and how board members can help raise your donor retention to make the highest impact. You'll discover how board members can raise money even without asking.

Afternoon session: We'll take a deeper dive as we explore how best to engage board members in fundraising. We'll consider several different ways board members can help in fundraising - challenges, opportunities and share best practices. We'll discuss everything from thank you calls and visits, to donor love experiences, to face-to-face asking. Gail will also focus on how board members can help in the major gift and capital campaign areas.
