What All Board Members Need to Know About Fundraising

Amy Varga, President, The Varga Group

Engaged, involved, and confident board members fuel fundraising success. Today, we will learn all you need to know as board members to be active and effective ambassadors for the organizations you serve.

Learning Objectives:
- Understand why board members are a vital part of fundraising
- Learn what parts of the fundraising cycle board members are most effective at
- Learn the keys to donor-centered fundraising

Area of Nonprofit Excellence - Leadership & Culture and Governance

Every learning opportunity NAO offers is aligned with one of nine areas of our Principles and Practices for Nonprofit Excellence that NAO believes are critical to every nonprofit’s effectiveness and success. Diversity, equity and inclusion are essential for a thriving, effective and successful nonprofit; therefore, DE&I is embedded across all nine areas.

This event focuses on Leadership & Culture and Governance. For additional resources in this category, visit: Leadership & Culture and Governance.
