Our Ambassador Excellence and Board Impact programs are designed to more fully engage your board members and amplify the impact they have on your mission. These capacity-building programs are all about developing boards with the knowledge and skills they need to excel:
Our Ambassador Excellence and Board Impact provide structured, interactive, hands-on coaching and workshops. They are designed to be fun, thought-provoking and educational. Board members gain the competence and confidence they need to become more effective nonprofit Ambassadors as they fulfill their roles as fundraisers, public advocates and in mission delivery.
With our Ambassador Excellence and Board Impact programs, you can provide an experience that will bond your board members, connect them to your staff and leadership, and help you achieve your mission.
We help nonprofit organizations get more impact from their board members when it comes to fundraising and friendraising.
Our clients understand that their Board of Directors is one of their most valuable assets. Board members are typically successful, savvy, and well-connected individuals, but they are often uncomfortable when it comes to reaching out to help their nonprofits raise the critical support needed to accomplish the mission.
The challenge is that most nonprofits work really hard to recruit board members, set expectations, and then hold their boards accountable for raising the support they need to accomplish their mission. But even when most board members know what is expected of them, they lack the knowledge and skills they need to be comfortable and successful Ambassadors on behalf of the organization. They’re uneasy when it comes to talking about money, and reluctant to share their cherished personal and professional contacts because they don’t know what the donor experience is going to be like. In short, board members know what they ought to be doing as friendraising Ambassadors, but they don’t know how to go about it. Nonprofits need to help their board members get more comfortable with the tasks they ask their board members to perform, or the result will be less impact in achieving the organization’s mission.
Our Ambassador Excellence programs help nonprofits provide board members the fresh perspectives, knowledge and skills they need to be more impactful as friendraising Ambassadors on behalf of their organizations. Our Board Impact programming helps nonprofits establish the basic board structure, governance, and culture needed to support board Ambassadorship.
We help board members think about their roles differently. It’s no longer about asking for money. It’s about inviting potential donors and supporters to join hands in pursuit of the organization’s mission – to be a part of something inspiring and worthwhile and impactful.
Board members enjoy an experience that bonds them to each other, fosters their personal and professional skills and inspires them as they fulfill their roles as fundraisers, public advocates and in mission delivery. Our clients, the nonprofits we serve, get highly energized and effective board members and an inspired group of motivated Ambassadors.
