Engaging your Board in Fundraising Part II

In News on October 4, 2010 at 9:38 am

So I’ve struck a nerve!

More people have written to me about this topic since my last two posts than ever before. So first, thanks for reading. Its good to know that this blog has value in the cyber world for those of us doing the heavy lifting in funding our mission driven nonprofits! Secondly, your response has driven me to develop a series of posts on “Engaging your Board in Fundraising”. I recently had the opportunity to teach at a conference in Boston on just this topic and the feedback and interest was remarkable. So based on that presentation (the PPT can be found at my Linked in site here ), I’ll be blogging over the course of a week in a series, sharing insight and recommendations on board engagement in fundraising.

Enjoy and thanks for your commendations 🙂

All you do to me is talk, talk, talk talk talk (with a nod to Coldplay)

Two problems with communication:

1) too often it is assumed that is has been accomplished.

2) the voices in our head drown out the words of everyone else.
