Special Program: From Good to Great: Moving Your Board Beyond Events-Based Fundraising
Wednesday, April 19, 2017 10:00 am
In-person | New York, NY
Check-in: 9:30 am
When it comes to engaging board members in fundraising, special events are familiar territory. At their best, board members rally to find sponsors, sell tickets, and network like pros at the event itself. Afterwards, they may exhale and sit back for much of the year until gala time rolls around again. There is an alternative to this cycle. Learn how to turn events into a launching point for your board members to recruit new supporters (particularly for major gifts), deepen existing relationships, and get out and ask year-round.
In this workshop, Judy Levine from Cause Effective will share her lessons from years of helping boards move toward building long-term donor relationships, using events as only one of many strategies in their year-round friend-raising arsenal.
