April 4, 2017
9:00 AM - 4:00 PM

Speaker: John Curtis, Ph.D.,

This class will focus on the roles and responsibilities of the board.  Discussion will include development of active and engaged members, how to raise major gifts, how to elevate board members competency in fundraising, and demystifying how to find new donors and new dollars.

The energy of the board becomes contagious, permeating the entire organization, and when it does -- everyone feels the effects -- the staff, volunteers, and most importantly, the donors who could make major gifts to the organization. This class is appropriate for new or experienced nonprofit leaders and their board members.    

Key Learning Objectives:

1.     Understand the board’s role in capacity-building by doing proper strategic planning and major gifts’ fundraising.

2.     Define the elements of a successful and diverse plan to raise funds through events, institutional, and donor-driven fundraising.
