Engaging Your Board in Fundraising

Posted on: March 26, 2014

Studies show that board member participation in fundraising is considered to be inadequate by executive directors and board members alike, so it’s important to look at what is keeping staff members from being more successful at engaging board members in fundraising.

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 Hedge asked nearly 50 nonprofit leaders to share their insights as staff members, board members, consultants, and/or funders of nonprofits.

• ensure that you have the right foundation in place to engage your board members in fundraising
