Do you wish your board did more fundraising? I’m going to guess the answer is “yes!” Many board members run the other way at the mention of fundraising. Others agree to help but don’t end up doing much. In this interactive workshop, we’ll discuss why your board might shy away from fundraising, how to talk to your board about this hot-button topic, and ways to involve your board in fundraising — without scaring them off and even if they “don’t know anyone with money.”
