Learn how to transform the workings of your board of directors and discover what board members absolutely must know-and what’s not so important.  Foster a culture of philanthropy throughout your entire organization.   Engage your board and other key community stakeholders in a meaningful way to ensure support in fundraising activities.

This workshop is not just for Directors. Every team member of your garden plays an important role in developing a culture of philanthropy at your organization.  Even those gardens with very small or non-existent boards need to learn how to get key influencers from the community to understand the important mission of your garden, and how they can help you get there. Lunch is included!

This workshop functions in two parts: 

Part 1: Led by Robbe Healey of the Association for Fundraising Professionals (AFP)
Roberta (Robbe) A. Healey, MBA, NHA, ACFRE has practiced philanthropic fundraising and non-profit management for more than 35 years. She is an accomplished fundraising generalist with successful track record of establishing new development offices, board and volunteer training. 

Part 2: Led by Jill Koski of Morton Arboretum and Penny Hunt of Marts and Lundy.
Jill Koski, Vice President of Development at Morton Arboretum, is an established development professional with 18 years of fundraising experience.  Jill leads the Arboretum’s efforts in raising $6.5 million annually in philanthropic dollars to support operations, special projects as well as capital campaigns to advance the mission of the organization.

Penelope (Penny) C Hunt, Senior Consultant & Principal, joined Marts & Lundy in February 2013 after 28 years as an advancement professional, 24 spent in higher education and four in the arts. A frequent faculty member for CASE, Penny was awarded CASE’s prestigious Steuben Apple for excellence in teaching. Her book, Development for Academic Leaders, a Practical Guide to Fundraising Success, was published in the fall of 2012.
