This class is postponed due to the coronoavirus emergency. Registration will re-open once we have rescheduled.

Corporate fundraising has been changing dramatically in recent years, augmented by the acceptance of corporate social responsibility, making it essential for nonprofits who are seeking connections with businesses to change and adapt their approaches and offerings.  Countless corporate mergers and restructuring make it even more critical for you to target your efforts in reaching out to corporations to negotiate mutually beneficial relationships.

This course will provide a broad overview of corporate philanthropy and fundraising to help you expand or diversify your organization’s funding base.  It will explore the traditional avenues of support through corporate foundations, matching gift programs, and corporate contributions budgets and will take an in-depth look at corporate sponsorship and cause-related marketing. The course will introduce real examples highlighting preferred approaches and what businesses want to receive for their philanthropic efforts.
