Event Description

Engaging Your Board in Fundraising: A Mission-based Approach

Grady Goodall, Director of Development, OSU Foundation, and Board President, NAO

Nonprofit organizations need comprehensive fundraising strategies and a solid team to carry out the work. Board members can be some of our most powerful ambassadors, storytellers, and fundraisers - yet many feel underprepared to participate in fundraising fully. Improving our ability to recruit, develop, and support our entire fundraising team can multiply our fundraising efforts, maximizing our organization's impact. In this session, we'll cover strategies to help staff engage board members and volunteers in fundraising activities so that everyone shares the workload - and the success!

NAO is committed to creating inclusive learning environments and providing reasonable accommodations for individuals with disabilities. Automatic closed captioning via Zoom is turned on by default for all NAO virtual sessions. For other accommodation requests, please contact us at Advanced notice of at least 10 days is appreciated.
