TOPIC: The Makings of a Great Fundraising Board

Boards are responsible for strategy, policy and fundraising.  Yet, most would rather do anything but fundraise.  The problem doesn’t lie with the board, rather it is how boards have approached the whole topic of fundraising.  It is time to change the conversation and lead the board into an experience where they participate, enjoy and even engage joyfully in raising funds.  Real fundraising is about building relationships: introducing new relationships, cultivating donors at the beginning of their philanthropic experience and then respectfully stewarding the relationship over the long haul.  These are the types of activities that board members are well suited for.  In this workshop you will learn how to create a philanthropic culture among your board and show how they can be true fundraisers – and never having to ask for a contribution.

Speaker Bio:  Sharon Danosky is a strategist and thought leader who partners with nonprofit organizations and their boards to build organizational capacity that works, with over 35 years’ experience working with organizations across the non-profit sector.  Sharon knows how to drive change and achieve results and has built sustainable fundraising programs that achieve double-digit increases and transform organizations.
