Presentation at 8:00

When it comes to raising money for your organization, the Board could be one of your greatest assets. In this session of the Mid-Valley Nonprofit Network, you'll get the inside story from local nonprofit board members and a development director, about their successes and failures with various approaches to board fundraising.

We'll explore:

  • Overcoming fear associated with fundraising
  • Various roles involved in different fundraising efforts
  • Engaging board members in a broad spectrum of fundraising activities
  • Key strategies that form the basis of effective fundraising programs

Come prepared with your questions, gain a better understanding of some of the most fundamental principles of fundraising, and leave inspired to strengthen your board fundraising efforts.
