Everything you need to know as a nonprofit board member to raise more money and help your organization succeed in meeting its goals

Engaging and informative, this practical guide to fundraising contains valuable insights that nonprofit boards need to succeed in raising money in today's dynamic economic environment.

  • Features case studies, real life examples, and checklists in an easy to reference format
  • Offers sample materials for a board retreat on building the successful fundraising team
