Getting Your Board to Give, Get or Get Off Edit Title

Of all the questions we get asked about board service, this one is probably the most frequent: how do I get my board members to donate money? Sometimes it’s framed like this: what’s a good give-or-get policy? Not so long ago, I met a member of an effective local board, and he told me that he and his fellow board members run their board on what he called the “3G Philosophy – Give, Get, or Get Off!”

This report explores a way to frame the conversation about your board’s give-or-get policy so that you can gain consensus from all board members and come to a satisfactory conclusion.
