Is Your Board Active? A Funder’s Perspective on Board Engagement
“It’s like religion. You have to make me believe!”
Do your board members act as ambassadors and fundraisers for your organization? Nancy McCann, president and trustee of the John P. Murphy Foundation and the Kulas Foundation, shares what she expects of board members and how to get them involved.
Nancy McCann came to foundation work from a successful 20-year marketing career with Forest City Enterprises.
