Results-Based Nonprofit Board Training

Great fundraising requires skill, a little humor, and a lot of energy.  Our board development and major gift training sessions are interactive, fast-paced, and rooted in best practices.  Full or half-day retreats and short workshops are available.  We’ll even bring chocolate.

Our Nonprofit Board Development Philosophy

We believe in the power of purpose. When people who share a passion come together, great things happen. We enter an organization to strategize and encourage their leadership to form strong teams and advance their missions.

Building a robust non-profit board means helping members identify personal strengths and use them for collaboration. This isn’t easy, though. Members’ varied backgrounds are an asset to an organization only if tapped effectively. Rose City Philanthropy delivers carefully selected self-assessments so board members can discuss what each brings to the table.

Self Assessment 

We bring a variety of tools that help board members to assess membership, skills, process, and performance.  Our goal is to create collective leadership and fuel joy in service to a great cause.

Fundraising Training

Our training content is informed by the latest philanthropic research. We emphasize strategies that produce measurable results and approach giving with a spirit of generosity and abundance.
