Board of Directors Fundraising Fire Up Sessions

Fundraising success starts with passion and fire from the top.

Jump-start fundraising efforts by preparing a board of directors to be the heart and soul of a public appeal. Fundraising Fire Up sessions translate the excitement of launching a new campaign into real world success. Sessions break down what is needed from a board and demonstrates how their involvement serves as a cue to donors of every level. 

Do board members:

  • Donate money themselves?
  • Introduce donors to the agency?
  • Talk with potential donors at events?
  • Talk about the great work the organization does each day…to friends, coworkers, and family?
  • Make asks when appropriate?

Trainers introduce the board to specific tools and techniques to begin fundraising, all in a fun, fast-paced training session. The board must be fired up if the fundraising program is going to succeed.  

Training when and where you need it—you design the engagement:

  • Half day, full day, or multiple day retreats – whatever your organization needs
  • On-site or online

Possible topics of discussion:

  • Roles and responsibilities of board and staff—with updated job descriptions
  • Give, get, or get off
  • Taking the fear out of the ask
  • Culture changes – being donor focused
  • Designing a plan
  • Telling your story – with passion
  • How to be a dream catcher and find donors
