Published on

Boards are responsible for the fiscal health of the nonprofit organizations they serve. Not only must they give, but it is essential that they take part in fund development. Many volunteers are uncomfortable in this role. This session will equip staff with tools to train board members about the fundraising cycle and how they can be involved in different phases based on their comfort levels. It will include tips on face to face solicitations.
