Tuesday, June 21, 2022
10:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. (Pacific)
Via Zoom
For many boards fundraising is truly an “f” word—and not in a good way.  Yet, it is inherent in a board’s governance duty to ensure that their organization is financially sustainable and has access to funding.  Fundraising is one of –if not THE--biggest priorities of any nonprofit but it is the #1 cause of complaint by both CEOs and Boards. Learn the three top reasons why board members don’t fundraise and how to change their mindsets. Join Kim Olpin (she/her), Executive Director at Jericho Road Pasadena, and Barbara O'Reilly, CFRE (she/her), Principal, Windmill Hill Consulting, as they share key steps you need to have in place to build your team of volunteer leaders; to train them and manage their expectations for success; and to determine the roles every Board member can—and should—play in creating a strong culture of giving within your organization--all through a lens of improving diversity and inclusion around the board table.
