Board Governance Boot Camp Spring 2023
Session 2 — Boards and Fundraising with Tom Hayashi
Wednesday - April 19, 2023, 9:00am - 10:30am
($175 for CVNL members, $250 for non-members)
This series is ideal for nonprofit Executive Directors/CEOs and nonprofit board members. Board chairs and those serving in an officer position, or are thinking of doing so, will find the sessions particularly useful.
Nonprofit board members enrich and govern an organization with their personal expertise, connections, and passion for the cause - and yet, they don't always come to the job with experience in things like nonprofit fundraising or governance. CVNL knows what strong, smart boards looks like - and how critical they are for the health of an organization. Our four-part series on board governance, led by CVNL leaders Linda Jacobs, CEO, and Tom Hayashi, Chief Capacity Building Officer, helps organizations diagnose their board needs and equip their board members with the right training and resources to take their leadership to the next level. From fundamentals to performance metrics, these sessions aim to maximize the engagement of your nonprofit’s most prominent advocates and allies.
Board governance practices are divided into the following 4 sessions: Fundamentals, Fundraising, Structure, and Development. Register for just Session 2: Boards and Fundraising, or register for the whole series.
Session 2: Boards and Fundraising with Tom Hayashi
April 19, 2023 from 9am – 10:30am
While fundraising is one of the main roles that nonprofit board members play, it is often one that many people are unfamiliar or uncomfortable with. We will craft a training that includes the psychology of fundraising, common myths and basic truths, fundraising best practices, and how nonprofit board and staff can work as partners to achieve fundraising goals. This training will be interactive and will include time for participants to practice using new information and approaches through role play scenarios. Session includes:
- Engaging and actionable training on board fundraising
- Expert guidance on questions/scenarios specific to your organization as part of the training, and a workbook of related information and resources
