The Board of Directors for any organization is responsible for the overall vision, direction, and sustainability of that organization. Often, Board members agree to serve on a Board without realizing the commitment it will require in various areas, including development. Sometimes they simply do not understand what is expected of them or how they can help. Some Board members are even intimidated by that big “F” word – FUNDRAISING. It is vital to have the right people serving on your Board who can both guide your organization and help “beat the drum” for its financial success.
Do you struggle with a Board that does not participate in the organization’s fundraising activities? Is your Board struggling to meet its fundraising goals? Have you set out individualized development goals for each Board member based on their specific knowledge and expertise? I can develop a customized Board Development Plan that can include:
Board members have shown that they are invested in the future of your organization by agreeing to serve on your Board. They bring with them their own personal and professional connections, experiences, and ideas. It is your job to capitalize on each member’s skills and knowledge in the most beneficial way for your organization. Remember, development is more than simply asking for money!
