I recently hosted a fundraising workshop for our Trustees, as many of them are relatively new to our organisation and we needed a bit of a refresh around what we are trying to achieve. It was a fantastic session, where I was able to do a bit of myth-busting when it comes to Trustees getting involved in fundraising as well as make sure we are all on the same page!
I strongly emphasised how VITAL fundraising from individuals is to our longevity as an organisation and I was ABSOLUTELY THRILLED when they all agreed! It really goes to show that educating your board on the benefits of fundraising really will make a difference to how much they support your work! If you would like any tips or advice on doing a workshop with your board, please do get in touch by email!
