Training Overview

Help your board see the positives in fundraising results. Learn how to reposition your reports and presentations.

Nonprofit fundraising leaders need to report progress to the board, usually at every board meeting. The typical board report is one detail after another: which gift or grant came in, which didn’t, why this or that opportunity is delayed, and so on. All too often, these reports—which could be positive—produce a negative reaction by board members. By reporting differently, you can convert those uncomfortable experiences into positive ones. A new approach will save you time and effort, enabling you to gather pertinent information more quickly.
