Train Your Board: Who is your fundraising spark plug

Who fires up your board?

Who encourages and supports their fundraising efforts?

Who holds them accountable and helps them honor their commitments?

If your answer is, “The staff” – or even worse, “Nobody” – you’re missing an essential ingredient to your fundraising success: the spark plug.

In today’s post, we’re suggesting a new role for somebody on your board, and a different way to think about boards, fundraising, and follow through.

Who is Your Board Fundraising Spark Plug?

The most effective boards embrace a culture of peer accountability – trustees who will take the lead, provide coaching and support, and follow up when other board members aren’t following through.

Once you read today’s post, you’ll start thinking about how to identify spark plugs for your board.

Take a look.
