    Here are a couple of questions to get you thinking about your board, its members and fundraising.

    Click the blue button that says REPLY on the right and share your response to one (or both) of the questions below. Then, scroll down and reply to someone’s comment. To do that, hover over a person’s comment and click the reply button (it looks like an arrow curving to the left).

    1. How do you encourage board members to use their networks for our cause?

    2. How do you keep board members informed about the impact of their fundraising efforts?

    I encourage board members to engage their peers by setting small, measurable benchmarks along with providing them with information they feel comfortable sharing. I then ask them to report back on their progress, successes and challenges. This helps them build confidence as they advocate, encourage, and ask their peers to support our organization.
