Today, fundraising has become an essential component of institutions' financial viability, particularly as government support shrinks and tuition and fees (now straining families' ability to pay) level off. It has never been more important to have a well-designed, well-managed, and well-executed development program. This publication offers critical advice on how this often complex, mission-central board committee can develop an effective structure, charge, and good practices. It includes information on the purpose of the committee, responsibilities, composition, and tips to maximize effectiveness. Appended are: (1) Sample Charter for a Development, Alumni Relations, and Public Affairs Committee; (2) Sample Charter for a State University Foundation; and (3) Sample Development Dashboard. A list of references and resources is included. (Contains 6 footnotes.)
