Engaged board leadership is essential to effective fundraising. At this special workshop, held in conjunction with AGB's 2016 National Conference on Trusteeship, board members and staff of institutionally affiliated foundations are invited to share ideas and learn from national thought leaders on how to leverage the full philanthropic capacity of your foundation.
8:30-11:30 am Successful Fundraising: Strategies for Public Institutions In an effort to combat declining state appropriations and increasing costs as well as diversify revenue sources, fundraising is now crucial to many public institutions’ bottom lines. This session will discuss how institutions and affiliated foundations can work together to ensure alignment of institutional goals, messaging, and fundraising priorities. Additionally, the session will address how board members can effectively oversee and evaluate the institution’s fundraising program. Specific attention will be given to the benchmarks to use, questions to ask, and the roles and responsibilities for the board and its members in advocating, enabling, and participating in the success of the institution’s fundraising and donor engagement process.
