Getting Your Board to Raise More Money and Creating a 12-Week Major Gifts Campaign,
February 15, 2018, 9:00 AM - 3:00 PM
Location: Willamette Heritage Center - Spinning Room
Getting Your Board to Raise More Money, 9 AM- 12 PM
Bring 2-3 of your board members with you to hear Andy identify simple, clear ways for your board to help with the fundraising process. He'll offer solutions for board members who want to help your fundraising goals but are afraid of making the ask. In this half-day workshop, Andy will discuss the reasons why, and outline strategies to turn things around. You’ll leave with several practical, specific ideas for increasing board involvement and effectiveness.
Creating a 12-Week Major Gifts Campaign, 1 - 3 PM
After a lunch break, Andy will take us through creating a 12-week major gifts campaign. Board members are welcome to stick around for this event, or invite different members of your fundraising team. You'll learn to mobilize your team, identify your prospects, and go out and ask. If you want to build a major donor program from scratch – or improve the one you’ve already got – this workshop walks you through planning, implementation and evaluation, step by step.
