Boards and fundraising: practical ideas for small shops

February 13, 2019



If there’s one question I’m asked most frequently in my travels, it’s this:


How can I get my board more engaged in supporting fundraising and philanthropy?


I’m chatting with awesome small shop fundraising expert Cindy Wagman this week on her joint podcast with Charity Village, The Small Nonprofit Podcast (if you’re a small shop, you’ll want to subscribe to this one ASAP!)


Here’s a few of the juicy tidbits we cover:


1. The one place to start with when you want to get your board joyfully participating in fundraising.


2. Why your board doesn’t need to know anyone with “deep pockets” to make a difference.


3. Why every board member needs to make a donation, and how to word that ask.


Have a listen here, and let me know what you think! I’m going to be sharing a lot of ideas and resources via video and podcasts (and still good ol’ fashioned writing!) in 2019 - I’d love your feedback on your format and platform preferences, as well as what topics you’re interested hearing more about.
