All stakeholders should act as ambassadors of your not-for-profit and tap their contacts for donations. But board members have a special duty to fundraise and are generally very effective at it. They’re knowledgeable about your organization, passionate about your mission and typically have contacts in business and philanthropic circles. To increase their odds of success, board members should try to meet prospective donors in person, preferably in a social setting. They also should “humanize” their request with personal stories illustrating why they support your organization’s work. Contact us to discuss fundraising solutions.
