Fund-Raising and the Trustee.
Bean, Atherton
Public trustees are highly beneficial to colleges and universities for 3 major reasons: (1) board members are likely to give their institutions needed financial support; (2) the presence of well-known names on a board gives other donors, whether they be governmental bodies, individuals, or foundations, more confidence in both the management of the enterprise and the likelihood of it continuing on the path toward its stated objectives; and (3) public board members are a valuable source of advice, little affected by the power structure and power flows within the institution. However, trustees can really only be beneficial if they are well organized into committees and groups where they can be effective. It is essentially up to the college president to see to it that the board members are utilized to their fullest capacity. (HS)
