Supercharge your nonprofit board with Philip Arca, a seasoned executive leader and expert in managing organizational transitions. With extensive experience serving as an Interim Executive Director for various social justice based nonprofits, Arca will join us to discuss ways to revamp, revitalize, and reimagine board member responsibility, particularly when it comes to fundraising.
By virtue of their governance role, a board member must be a leader in fundraising, whether or not they’re actually giving. Too often, a disconnect exists in which board members fail to fully embrace or even conceive of the full scope of their role, or simply lack the skills that would allow them to do so.
“How do you overcome a dysfunctional board? asks Solomon Belette, Director of the Sanford Institute of Philanthropy at John F. Kennedy University. “How do you elevate board engagement in fundraising?” This Sanford Institute of Philanthropy workshop will begin by covering the three pillars of effective governance: engagement, fundraising, and stewardship. Participants will return to their organizations with a clear sense of how they can jumpstart their boards, engaging and equipping board members to fully exercise their fiduciary roles.
