[ Bio ]

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?
