"Heritage Consulting held our hands through a major reorganization, exploring every scenario and option, before steering us into the right structure. After researching precedents and regulations, then sorting through all the tedious paperwork, they (Donna Harris) laid our clear, easy steps for our Board and staff to follow with confidence."
This is what the crash course is all about.
This crash course will help you respond to the age-old statement “I’ll do anything, but just don’t ask me to fundraise!” We will show you how even the most reluctant board (or committee) member can participate in the many tasks toward raising the necessary funds to operate your local Main Street organization. We will conduct a mock 20 minute training session that you can replicate at home, about many tasks needed to raise funds. The trick is showing board members that fundraising is not only about making the ASK. Everyone can do his or her small part. In addition, by asking Board and committee members to undertake tasks they will carry out, you will get greater participation (and less anxiety) from all involved. Based on the work of Hildy Gottleib (http://www.hildygottlieb.org) this workshop shows you how you can turn even the most reluctant board member into an enthusiastic worker for downtown fundraising efforts. We will supply a nifty template to use for your training session at home.
