Attention nonprofit executive directors, development staff and board members: Do you feel you could or should engage your board more in fundraising?
Gorge Nonprofit Collaborative has been working with Columbia Gorge Community College to offer an opportunity to get your board more involved in fundraising. “Mobilize Your Board to Raise More Money,” led by Andy Robinson, will be held Friday, Oct. 11, from 1-5 p.m. at CGCC’s Hood River campus, room 310.
The workshop will outline strategies to turn things around through stronger leadership. Participants will leave with several practical options for increasing board involvement and effectiveness.
n Developing a culture of fundraising
n The psychology of fundraising: Why donors give
n Building a board fundraising ladder
n Identifying and grooming your fundraising spark plug
n Alternative fundraising models and how to apply them to your board
n Holding each other accountable with board fundraising agreements
The training is designed for executive directors, development staff and board members of nonprofits. Board chair/executive director teams will especially enjoy this opportunity to work together to mobilize their boards.
The cost is $40 per participant. More information and registration is available at http://bit.ly/1axCFh6.
