Workshop Description

Morning Session: 9 am. – Noon
Big Money for Small Groups

80% of charitable funds come from individual donors, not foundations or corporations. Learn to build a fundraising program that honors your mission, engages potential donors, and raises more money.

Where money comes from:

  • Building a diverse funding base
  • The basic principles of fundraising
  • Identifying prospective donors
  • “The ask” — face-to-face solicitation
  • Ranking the effectiveness of different fundraising strategies

(BREAK – Lunch will be provided)

Afternoon Session: 1 – 4 p.m.
What Every Board Member Should Know About Financial Management … And Probably Doesn’t

With the possible exception of “How do I avoid fundraising?” a board member’s most commonly unasked question is, “What do all these numbers mean – and what am I supposed to do with them?” This workshop is designed to help trustees (plus staff and volunteers) get over their financial phobia — with clarity, humor, and few unexpected metaphors. We’ll discuss:

    • Five things you should know about your nonprofits finances — without looking at a spreadsheet
    • Creating a one page financial dashboard to simplify board oversight
    • Managing financial risks
    • Training board members to be financially literate and engaged
