A strong and productive banking relationship is as important to your nonprofit organization as its relationships with funders and community leaders.
Your bank can help smooth cash-flow with a line of credit; open doors for you to prospective major donors, partners; provide forecasting tools; serve as a business advisor; and even so much more.
This week’s Featured Conversation with Ashley Carson will help us learn how to build a strong banking relationship. Specifically, we discussed:
- The difference between having a bank and having a banker
- Signs that you have a strong relationship with your banker
- How to tap into your banker’s network
- Benefits of banking with local banks
- When you know it’s time to talk to other bankers
