Nonprofit Board Essentials: Fundraising for Boards

September 30, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Saturday, September 30, 2017 1:00 PM–3:30 PM  Main (Oakland)

“I want to help – I just don’t know what to do.” “Why doesn’t the staff just find the money?” “Why doesn’t everyone just see we deserve the money?”

These questions and many more can divide the very people who want our nonprofits to succeed the most: volunteer Board members and nonprofit staff members.  How do we work collaboratively to better the organizations we love?

This session, through best practice presentation, honest discussion about where the misunderstandings lie between volunteers and staff, and tips on preparation that will make a fundraiser out of virtually every Board member, are just part of what attendees will learn.  And, everyone will be sent home with discussion topics to share with their boards and staff. Communication is the key!

Nonprofit staff members are encouraged to bring one or two board members along for this program to be as valuable as possible.

The speaker for this workshop will be Janet C. Emery, CFRE.  Janet is president of J. Emery Consulting, Inc. and brings nearly 30 years of successful development experience to her business.  Janet’s experience in the arts, education, healthcare and human services supports a documented track record of success.  She works with a wide range of clients, helping these nonprofits enhance their sustainability through wise and ethical development practices.  Janet partners with her clients to find customized answers to their questions.

The fee to attend this program is $20 per person.  Space is limited and registration is required by calling the Nonprofit Resource Center at 412.622.6277.  (If you also register to attend Building an Effective Board, the total fee to attend both programs will be $30.)
