Key Secrets to Inspiring Your Board to Fundraise Edit Title
Wed, Jan 13, 2016 at 1pm EDT / 10am PDT Edit Date
Are you sick and tired of board members who refuse to fundraise? Guess what? You can heal yourself and give a shot of much-needed energy to your volunteers, simply by learning these key secrets – and sharing them. That’s right! Just get inside your board members’ heads a bit, and you can change ‘reluctant’ to ‘ready’, ‘scared’ to ‘sure’ and ‘loathing’ to ‘loving.’
Here's why this is so important: When anyone in leadership, or anyone in program, sees fundraising as offensive, you are sunk.
The purpose of this webinar is to walk you step-by-step through the process of getting your board not only comfortable with fundraising, but actually zealous about it! We'll discuss how to help your board:
• Understand and overcome their fears;
• Explore and act on their passions, and
• Become dedicated, even passionate, ambassadors, advocates and askers!
You will learn:
The 2 things board members are most afraid of, and how to overcome them.
The 3 things board members must understand to embrace fundraising.
The 3 ways we go wrong when asking board members to raise funds.
How to do a better job making board assignments.
How to help board understand their personal asking style.
How to reframe fundraising as storytelling
How to get every board member raising money.
Who Should Attend: Executive Management; Development Staff; Program Staff; Board Members; Volunteers
All participants will receive a free copy of my e-book, *Leadership’s Role in Major Gifts Development*, with a 17-point Checklist that will take you through all the key principles your leadership must embrace for your fundraising efforts to succeed.

I was at my wit's end trying to get my Foundation board to do something -- anything. Claire (?) described exactly what I needed to do. Everything she said applied to my board and to me. The steps she recommended were clear, specific, and made a lot of sense.
