It’s generally preached that nonprofit board members must fundraise. Staff cannot do it alone. Board members MUST take a leadership role, giving and getting funds to help their nonprofit survive and thrive. But too many board members shy away from fundraising.

They have good intentions, but fundraising is hard to do. Panelists will discuss how to get real with various aspects of fundraising that board members should be expected to undertake. What really works, what doesn’t, under what circumstances, and why.

Panelists include:

  • Mark Pavlovich, Ph.D., Vice President of Advancement, West Chester University
  • Karen Simmons, CEO, Chester County Community Foundation
  • Michael DeHaven, CPA, Rainer & Co., Board Member Chester County Community Foundation, Chester County Chamber Foundation & Chester County Economic Development Council

Mark Yoder, President and CEO of the Greater West Chester Chamber of Commerce, will be the moderator.
