Mobilize Your Board to Raise More Money

The Missouri Bicycle & Pedestrian Federation is pleased to host fundraising training by Andy Robinson for Missouri bike/ped groups and clubs.


Bring your board, staff, and key volunteers and join us Saturday, August 2, 2014 in St. Louis, MO for the MoBikeFed Board Fundraising Workshop with Non-Profit Fundraising expert Andy Robinson.

  • When: 10:00 am - 3:00 pm, Saturday, August 2
  • Where: William Kerr Foundation, 21 O'Fallon St., St. Louis, MO 
  • Cost: $15.00 per person (to cover refreshments and lunch) * includes a vegetarian option - Register online here.

If your board isn't raising all the money it could - indeed, if your boarrd isn't raising any money at all - you're not alone. In this workshop, we'll discuss the reasons why, and outline strategies to turn things around while touching on innovative ways to build a solid donor based and continued revenue stream for your organization. You'll leave with several practical, specific ideas for increasing board involvement and effectiveness.

Topics: 

  • Redefining fundraising: It's not just asking for money
  • Why people give: The psychology of fundraising
  • Building a board fundraising menu
  • The basics of face to face fundraising
  • Helping board members take leadership and hold each other accountable

Join MoBikeFed and help us collectively build the independent strength of Missouri's bike/ped groups while encouraging networking and independent group for our partners in the State.
