It is not enough to simply know how to ask. It is crucial that you have the right team equipped with the right information and support. Board members can be highly effective at engaging in fundraising if we remove the misconceptions around “what does it mean” and how it is unlikely we will ever see a ceiling to what can be raised!

What you will learn:

  • The philanthropic landscape and why this is important to you.
  • What is the actual fundraising process?
  • What does an effective “pitch” look like?
  • How to create a board that can effectively fundraise.
