If your board isn’t raising all the money it could — indeed, if your board isn’t raising any money at all — you’re not alone. In this webinar, we’ll outline strategies to turn things around. You’ll leave with several practical, specific ideas for increasing board involvement and effectiveness.

• Redefining fundraising: It’s not just asking for money
• Addressing myths and misconceptions about who has it and who gives it
• Building a board fundraising menu
• Helping board members take leadership and hold each other accountable
