What was the state of board engagement at nonprofits last year? More specifically, how did board engagement relate to fundraising? We wanted to examine the board fundraising data we uncovered in our 2019 Board Engagement Survey, as well as learn about methods to help board members participate more in development.
We sat down with Kelly Velasquez-Hague of OneCause to talk through the survey results and get a better understanding of ambassador fundraising. Check out the replay for valuable information on these vital topics.
In addition to the valuable information provided in the discussion, we also have the slide deck full of examples of real-life ambassador fundraising campaigns and key takeaways about board engagement in development available for download.
We surveyed 640 nonprofit board stakeholders on everything from meeting preparation to fundraising participation by board members. Check out the results and see how your board measures up here. You can even share the report at your next meeting to facilitate a discussion on board member engagement in development.
After four years of development at a private Montessori school, Kelly Velasquez-Hague realized she had a passion for helping others find more efficient and engaging ways to raise money for their important causes. She has extensive experience at OneCause (previously BidPal) in finding out what nonprofits need for successful event fundraising, and helping them implement software solutions. Her love of helpful content drives her to constantly find out what information would be most beneficial to her OneCause audience, and produce high-quality resources for them. Kelly currently resides in Chicago.
