When you ask someone for money, you are giving them an opportunity to invest in a worthwhile project that will benefit their community. What an honor for you both!
Board members have the responsibility to make certain their organization is carefully managed, is fulfilling its mission, and has sufficient financial resources at its command to implement current and future programs.
