Training Overview

Replace board questioning about your fundraising with appreciation. Discover new tactics to garner praise and support.

As the new fiscal year continues, you are likely beaming with joy and pride in your amazing fundraising accomplishments. However, board members may be less excited and even critical. A momentary drop in donations causes great consternation even with a robust pipeline of future commitments. After a record-breaking quarter, they lament that every quarter is not as strong or wonder how you will top the results in the future.

You can transform those icky board fundraising interrogations into positive praise-fests. By changing how you report information, you will stop the criticism and elicit support. Applying specific technical steps to gather, analyze, and present results will save you time and bring joy to even the biggest curmudgeon on your board.
