Recruit Fundraising-Focused Board Members
Nonprofit professionals must generate time, talent and treasure on a constant basis. You cannot do it alone for long. Seek to recruit, train, orient, cultivate, solicit and steward potential fundraising board members as you would donors. Going forward, I strongly suggest you place this task as a very high priority on your expanding to-do list today.
