One of the biggest questions we get asked is “how can I get my board to fundraise?” And the truth, much like the diversity and complexity of your board, is nuanced. There is no one-size-fits-all fundraising solution for every board, but there are some helpful steps and practices that you can implement to inspire board giving and overcome philanthropic fears.
We’ve got a secret for you (that you might already know). Not all of your board members want to be the face of your fundraising program. However, this doesn’t mean they can’t be involved and valuable to the process. We have a handy tool that we like to use in assessing where each board member can be most helpful, whether that be connecting the organization to new prospects or closing a deal. Our board survey allows you to treat your board as a team and utilize each member’s strengths to build a stronger fundraising program that doesn’t leave board members feeling uncomfortable.
