2nd Floor, Oakham House, Ryerson University, 63 Gould St.
Halton Hills ON CANADA
Our Boards tend to place a great deal of emphasis on results. Your Board wants to hear about ROI and low fundraising costs. How do you create an understanding of the long-term nature of major gift development? What do you do if you don't really even have access to the Board to try to deepen their understanding? We will explore three actual case studies where the development professional successfully handled talking to their boards and outline several strategies you can ADAPT to your SPECIFIC SITUATION to help you talk to YOUR Board! In this session: • Learn how to assess your role (power/level of influence) with your Board. Determine if they need to change it and, if so, how. • Learn what tools are available to add credibility to your case. • Learn how to handle common Campaign issues • Learn how to manage your role when there is an absence of leadership or ineffective leadership.
