The winter and spring workshop schedule is coming shortly!
Don’t miss our next program on December 3 at Kohl Children’s Museum!
In our final program of the calendar year, Jane Jorgensen will provide a unique donor perspective. Nonprofit organizations rely on their boards for many functions: governance and budgeting, guidance, community involvement and, of course, fundraising. Though some boards downplay the fundraising aspect, it is essential that each board member be an active champion in ensuring the financial health of the institution. They can bridge different perspectives, turn ideas into solutions, and make good things happen. That’s why they were asked to be on the board in the first place, and that’s why it is not enough for people to sit on boards; they have to stand for their missions. Ever wonder how this impacts your work as a Development Officer? Jane Jorgensen, donor and board member of the Indiana University Foundation will provide her unique perspective.
