  • The basic principles of fundraising
  • Identifying prospective donors
  • “The ask” — face-to-face solicitation
  • Ranking the effectiveness of different fundraising strategies

(BREAK - Lunch will be provided)

Afternoon Session: 1 - 4 p.m.
What Every Board Member Should Know About Financial Management … And Probably Doesn’t

With the possible exception of “How do I avoid fundraising?,” a board member’s most commonly unasked question is, “What do all these numbers mean – and what am I supposed to do with them?” This workshop is designed to help trustees (plus staff and volunteers) get over their financial phobia — with clarity, humor, and few unexpected metaphors. We’ll discuss:

  • Five things you should know about your nonprofit’s finances — without looking at a spreadsheet
  • Creating a one-page financial dashboard to simplify board oversight
  • Managing financial risks
  • Training board members to be financially literate and engaged
