Date: Thursday, April 3, 2014
Presenter: Dan Meyers, President, Al Sigl Community of Agencies
Intended Audience: This workshop is for board leaders, especially development chairs, and executive staff

The importance of developing and executing a strategy for creating capital, both from internally-generated operating surpluses and fundraising efforts, will be addressed. As part of this discussion, the role of the board and individual board members in fundraising – both annual and endowment giving – will be explored. Also, the general strategies for managing endowment investments will be outlined. Topics will include:

  •   Board members and other volunteers as fundraisers
  •   Roles of board leadership vs. staff
  •   Some can’t, some won’t – matching the right volunteer with the job
  •   Giving volunteers the tools they need
  •   Special fundraising activities, e.g., annual giving, endowment
  •   Communications strategies and support
  •   Developing annual and long range plans
  •   Monitoring, assessing, and improving performance
  •   When is a consultant appropriate?
