Those who choose to donate 100,000.00 are not just presidents. They become Board members. Board member giving is natural and necessary. Most charitable organizations expect their Board Members to participate in fundraising. Well, we consider our donors to have already done that. We simply ask for a monthly or annual pledge.
The board is responsible for providing a sound financial basis for the organization. By personally contributing, a board member recognizes this responsibility and demonstrates a commitment. Board members are expected to appear virtually or physically for stakeholder meetings and designate their own organization as one of the main recipients of their generosity. Why?Many foundations only contribute to organizations where every board member is a contributor.
