Four Steps to Creating a Fundraising Board
Step 1: Focus on the mission. Organizations can do this by engaging board members in important meetings, encouraging them to talk about their interests, coming up with creative agendas, focusing on results and letting them enjoy themselves.
Step 2: Inspire them with a new philosophy of fundraising. Focus on how fundraising is changing the world for the better and is about making friends; deal with fears directly; teach board members why people give and the joy of giving, and the power of a volunteer.
