Learn how to engage your board in fundraising, and hear about increasing board participation from Lauren Kotmel, Downtown Cleveland Alliance.

It’s the job of the board of trustees to ensure that an organization has the resources it needs to advance its mission. Successful fundraising occurs when a nonprofit’s volunteer leadership is enthusiastically engaged in the process, and when the board of directors and the professional staff work together in a strategic and coordinated way.

This class helps you think through the process of getting your board involved with fundraising. What we will cover:

The role of your board
Why board members may be reluctant to fundraise and how to overcome these concerns
Ways the board can participate in fundraising activities
Tips for strengthening your fundraising board

As a special guest, Lauren Kotmel, Development and Community Relations Specialist for Downtown Cleveland Alliance, will be on hand to discuss the best methods for connecting with your board members. Don’t miss this special learning opportunity!
