NPO Connection | “If only my Board would help me raise money”

August 14 | 11:15 am - 1:00 pm

Marcy Heim

Raising money can be the most feared and least understood responsibility for non-profit leaders and Boards alike. Fundraising staff know that support from their Board is key to development success, but what is the best way to get them comfortable and excited about being part of the team?

Register to attend, and learn how staff and Board can collaboratively change the fundraising mindset from a “necessary evil” to one that is joyful! By changing how we think and talk about raising money, keying into authentic relationships, using the Cycle of Successful Relationships, and using simple tools Marcy Heim will share, raising support can be a joyful, VERY SUCCESSFUL experience for staff, board members, donors, volunteers and leadership.

Marcy Heim, is a keynote speaker, a major-gift expert, life/fundraising coach, author, singer and mom.

Over 11,000 have experienced her “Making an Artful Ask” training and confidently and successfully empower others to say, “Yes.” Marcy’s goal is to replace drama with clarity, chaos with action and spread the power and joy of living a generous life!  Find her at where you can also subscribe to her blog, “Artful Action” or purchase her book, Empowering Your Board to Serve as Effective Development Ambassadors” a perfect supplement to today’s presentation!
