Fundraising and Governance Workshop: Register Now!

Fundraising and Governance Workshop:  Register Now!

It’s never been more important for boards and staff to work together effectively to solicit financial support for your organization.  

That’s why we’re inviting nonprofits working in education, housing, and human services within Liberty Bank’s service area to attend our workshop on “Purposeful Boards, Powerful Fundraising.”  Our presenter is Chuck Loring, a nationally recognized expert on board governance and fundraising.

Designed for board/CEO teams, this practical session addresses the complementary roles board members play in their organization’s governance and resource development. The session begins with a close look at board recruitment, structure, operations, and culture, knowing that weak boards don’t raise funds effectively. The second part of the session focuses on how to involve board members in effective fundraising and their role in supporting your bequest and planned giving program.

Topics covered in this day-long session will include:

  • Trends impacting governance & fundraising in the nonprofit sector.
  • Why some nonprofits confuse volunteering with governance.
  • Legal obligations of nonprofit boards.
  • How great boards profile before recruiting.
  • Why term limits are essential for a fundraising board.
  • How successful fundraising is not about asking for money.
  • Periodic fundraising exercises you can do with your board.
  • How to get your board to articulate your organization’s value.
  • How every single willing board member can be a great fundraiser.

Who should attend?

To maximize the benefit of this session, CEO’s/Executive Directors should be accompanied by the board Chair and at least one board member. Maximum of 4 attendees per organization.  Multiple board members make a great team!

Please join us!  There is no charge for attendance, but space is limited, so pre-registration is required.
