Raising money is never easy. In a good economy, more people jump into the fray. In a tough economy, people often defeat themselves. The "good news" is that there are always many opportunities for organizations with discipline and an entrepreneurial spirit. Whether you are committed to the arts, social services, the environment or another cause, and whether you serve those half-way around the world or half-way around the block, there is a way to fund your mission.

About the Instructor(s)
Carol Weisman has served on 31 boards and has been president of 7. As the president of Board Builders, she works primarily in the US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand doing lectures, training and board retreats.
Carol is the author of 8 books on governance, fundraising and philanthropy. Her book, “Raising Charitable Children” was featured in The New York Times, Parade Magazine and was the cover story of Scholastic Parent and Child Magazine.
As a young woman, Carol’s Mother told her, "Don’t give it away for free." Carol respected and loved her Mother and listened to her advice 99% of the time. Now that she is a member of the AARP set, she has decided to ignore her Mother’s advice about giving things away. Her new book, “Transforming Ordinary People into Fundraising Superheroes” will be available for free on her website - www.BoardBuilders.com. Carol ultimately hopes that - if you like the book - you will buy a print copy for everyone on your board.
Carol’s Mom was a big-time rule-breaker and though long gone, would find this little rebellion rather pathetic!
