One important but sometimes misunderstood area of board responsibility is to ensure the organization has the financial, human, and other resources it needs to carry out its mission and achieve its goals. The specific nature of how this is done varies according to the organization’s business model, culture, structure, and organizational capacity. This session will provide an overview of how board members can foster a pro-active approach to financial resource development including policy making, planning, fundraising, and strategy development. We will also define and explore the various active roles board members can play as donors, ambassadors, advocates, and askers.
