With the evolving coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis, we know it’s a challenging time for everyone. To support your work and ensure our trainings are more accessible during this difficult time, we’re offering this program at an early-bird price of $49 – half of the standard cost. The price increases to $99 on October 6, 2020.  

Join us to learn practical strategies for better engaging your board in fundraising. In this hands-on virtual workshop, we’ll cover boards’ typical fundraising responsibilities, why some board members may be reluctant to fundraise, and how to overcome these concerns. We will also brainstorm new ways your board members can participate in fundraising activities and will share tips for strengthening your board and aligning on fundraising priorities. Your board can play a critical role in COVID-19 fundraising planning for the upcoming year. Whether you’re an executive director, board member, or development professional, this course will help you plan for your organization to fundraise better as one team.
