Engaging the Board in Fundraising – A Staff’s Guide

820-Engaging-Your-BoardI had the great privilege of hearing Kathy Hedge share her insights and great strategy on Board fundraising. Her book, Engaging Your Board in Fundraising: A Staff’s Guide available through BoardSource is worth purchasing.

So what are the barriers that keep staff from being more successful in engaging board members to fundraise? And how can we increase our chances for success? Kathy interviewed nearly 50 nonprofit leaders to share their insights as staff members, board members, consultants, and/or funders of nonprofits. Her book will help you:

  • ensure that you have the right foundation in place to engage your board members in fundraising
  • energize board members by connecting them to mission
  • establish the context of your funding process so board members understand the big picture
  • cultivate, engage, and support board members in fundraising tasks

I have a written quite a few posts on Board fundraising on this blog. Hope you find them useful as well.
