We’ve all been there. You’re in a Board meeting, and fundraising comes up. You’re asked to volunteer, set a goal, or solicit funds. You look down, hoping you will not be called on to commit on the spot, then you scurry out of the meeting as quickly as you can, avoiding eye contact. What if you were asked to do only two things? Two things that would create a measurable impact on the nonprofit that you are serving? What if those two things help you to engage in the areas YOU want? What if, in the end, you end up surprised at how passionate you are for the nonprofit and suddenly you don’t mind raising funds, in fact, you find yourself unexpectedly bringing up your Board work or the work of the nonprofit you serve? When you leave this workshop, you will know how this happens to the nonprofit Board members I work with. I promise you will leave with a sense of relief, and I guarantee you will know exactly how you want to engage, and you will feel a great sense of relief!
