Speed dating fundraising ideas

One of the revolutions in match-making is called speed-dating.

Speed-dating events bring an equal number of men and women to a bar or restaurant and give each person five minutes with another person before meeting the person at the next table.

I just read a fascinating article on the Charlotte, N. The article reported on a recent gathering of several area non-profit agencies and approximately 30 people who were seriously interested in becoming board members.

It was called “Finding Chemistry In The Boardroom Through Speed-Dating”.

Just like regular speed dating, the two parties, the non-profit and the board seeker, sat at a table in a large room and talked for a few minutes before a bell rang and everyone shifted to meet new people.

During the time together, the agencies and the candidates tried to get a feel for each other to determine if they would make a good match. First of all, I thought about it from the perspective of the non-profit, but then I remembered that this event was really more of a two-way conversation, rather than a standard, old-fashioned job interview.

I say this because I believe that a non-profit that has its act together is going to attract a whole host of board candidates organically.

This is the kind of group I’d want to be a part of.

If the non-profit came to this speed date event, only because they couldn’t find anyone to join them, I’d be very worried.

The next question I’d pose to the non-profit would be about the board itself.

I’d ask a very open-ended question, such as “Tell me about your board.” I would purposefully take this broad approach, because I’d want to see what they thought was important to tell me.
