Enthusiastic, dedicated and full board involvement is essential for successful fundraising. Board members may be nervous about fundraising–not because they cannot do it, but because they didn’t hear about it during recruitment, never learned how to do it and think they will make enemies of their friends if they ask. Participants in this webinar will review best practice board roles and responsibilities, examine a framework for assessing the type(s) of resistance the organization must address, and then use the framework to draft an action plan to address and overcome the resistance!
