fundraising for board members

Are you on a board but do not know how to participate in fundraising or maybe find it “cringy”? Or maybe you have board members that are not engaged and want to get them excited about revenue development?

We understand that fundraising is not everyone’s favourite topic, but it does happen to be ours.

This workshop will introduce foundational fundraising concepts so that board members are better equipped to understand the work of the fundraisers and the methods used to raise money. We will also introduce ways that they can become involved in revenue generation while staying in their comfort zone.

Participants will leave with a better understanding of:

  • the charitable landscape in Canada and what motivates donors to give
  • what impacts our ability to raise money
  • how they fit into and can contribute to raising money

This workshop is available to be booked privately. There is no limit to size but a group under 12 is ideal. Organizations have the option to include staff members as well.
