    Sep

    Most nonprofit organizations recognize the value of an effective board and may strive to develop and fortify powerful board members, but their strategies for board development are typically vague at best, and results are, therefore, illusive. This session will be a fast-paced, and intensive webinar. The training will be appropriate for a new or veteran board or staff member and will focus on understanding the Board's role in ongoing capacity-building to enhance your credibility, defining the three elements of a high performance Board, learning how proper planning can ensure raised revenue to advance your mission, and identifying how the Board can elevate the visibility and ensure sustainability.

    22

In this webinar, you’ll discover how to identify the characteristics of a Culture of Philanthropy, how to develop a compelling Case for Support, how to find new dollars and new donors in your community, five steps to raising major gifts that work, and how to design and host highly successful Awareness events.
