Wed, Oct 15, 2014 at 1pm EDT / 10am PDT Edit Date

Session Overview:

• Frustrated with board members saying that they’ll help – only to see nothing happen?
• Tired of fundraising being an afterthought at board meetings?
• Waiting for the day when others will be as excited about fundraising as you once were?

Fundraising success depends on many critical factors, not the least of which is having a collaborative approach to the fundraising process. For philanthropy to be truly fulfilling for donors (thus assuring that they will continue their contributions and become a sustaining source of funds for the organization) the following collaborative mindsets must exist:

• Program staff is committed to measuring impact and collecting stories.
• The chief executive for the organization embraces their role as the chief asker.
• The board regularly discusses fundraising and embraces their role as ambassadors.
• Support staff recognize unique needs of fundraising and work collaboratively to meet those needs.
• Fundraising professionals seek out partnerships and approach planning as a joint effort.

In this presentation, we’ll explore what you’ll need to know to build a collaborative approach within your organization - regardless of what your official role is.

Learning Objectives:

• Recognize primary barriers to boards members becoming more engaged in fundraising
• Identify the five different bodies of knowledge you will need to be familiar with
• Learn a successful framework to implement with your board to begin the development of a collaborative approach
