VIRTUAL EVENT: Deepening Your Board's Involvement in Fundraising

04/16/2021 11:45 AM - 01:30 PM PT


This workshop will explore a 3-step process for building board engagement in fundraising. You'll have the opportunity to reflect on what is and isn't working in engaging your board with fundraising.  We'll share some tools that could deepen your board's engagement.  Then you'll have some time in small group breakouts to consider possible next steps that will take your board fundraising to a higher level. This presentation is appropriate for Executive Directors and Development staff who work with boards and Board Chairs. 

We will use Zoom plus Google Slides for this interactive, hands-on presentation.  Be sure to join us at 11:45 AM on Zoom for a chance to meet the DER Board, other attendees and to network!
