Lab: Board Fundraising

  • Arts & Business Council of Chicago 444 North Wabash Avenue, LL Event Space Chicago, IL, 60611 United States (map)

Speaker: Marty Grochala, Director of Special Gifts and Planned Giving, Goodman Theatre

Is your board comfortable talking about money? What about asking for money?

A board that is adept at fundraising is crucial to the long-term success of any organization but the concept of asking for money can be intimidating to some trustees. Learn how to identify, cultivate, and solicit corporate and individual donors, including “The Ask,” and start building your board’s fundraising toolkit.

This workshop will discuss:

  • Building a culture of philanthropy
  • Donor-centered fundraising
  • Board and Staff Team Fundraising
  • Using programming as a cultivation tool for donors and new board members

Attendees will be provided with materials to begin board members’ individual fundraising plans.  

Online registration will close on Sunday, Aug 7. We will accept walk-up registrations on Monday.
