One of the key responsibilities of a nonprofit board is to ensure that the organization has enough resources to fulfill its mission. Thus, board members are often encouraged, even required, to participate in the fundraising efforts of an organization.
Many nonprofits will expect board members to make at least a minimal personal contribution in order to demonstrate their support for the organization and to serve as a model for other donors. Board members can also play a key role in soliciting funds from both individual and institutional donors through one-on-one solicitations, special events fundraising, and other methods.
