About the course

Increasing Board Engagement For Strategic Stewardship

Today's nonprofit board members and their organizations face a changing environment filled with increasing competition, sophisticated donors, and new methods of solicitation. How should the nonprofit leaders change their approach to help board members react to this environment more effectively and provide leadership that supports their nonprofit organization? How can board members use their time and commitment to become better ambassadors and help organizations increase their impact and meet their missions?

In this program, you will learn how to provide tools to board members that will help maximize donor engagement, define a clear strategy for recruiting new board members and build stronger relationships with donors. Kellogg Center for Nonprofit Management faculty and industry practitioners will engage you with a rich mix of classroom learning and interactive discussion.
