Live Webinar:
New Structures and Strategies for Board Engagement and Fundraising

Wednesday, July 24
2–3:30 p.m. (ET)

No one joins a board to fail, yet many trustees often come up short in their nonprofit service and their understanding, approach to and success in fundraising for the institution. In this webinar, we will consider new structures and strategies to organize the relationship-building and fundraising work of the board, highlighting specific approaches and case studies from a variety of institutions.

We will discuss how new approaches allow museums to apply the strategies in the development process to models that engage the full board and yield results—and yes, raise money. By organizing the critical work, regularly engaging trustees in problem solving and educating them about the opportunities presented through fundraising, the work of building more sustainable museums can begin.

Who Should Attend
