    Your board is (possibly) your greatest fundraising asset. But a lot of times, they’re not being asked to do the things they’re good at. Here are a few resources to help you leverage your each of your board members strengths — and turn them into fundraising ambassador.

    When you’re looking for new ways to inspire your board, where do you turn? Let us know in the comments!

    Nonprofit Storytelling for Board Members — The little book that helped start it all! @ChrisDavenport wrote this book to help your board members find their way around storytelling. It’s FREE and it’s awesome.

    Storytelling for the Boardroom — Peter Drury’s second visit to Tactical Thursdays was an all-time great conversation.

    Turning Board Members into Fundraisers — from the Movie Mondays Archives comes this gem of a video. It’s 8 minutes of practical and implementable tips. (PS, while you’re watching the video, give the NPSC’s YouTube channel a follow.)

    I just watched the movie. It was helpful and I am going to ask our Board Development Chair to share it at our next board meeting.
