Tapping Employee-Guided Giving
As federal funding becomes less certain and an improved economy begins yielding greater private sector philanthropy, nonprofits and local agencies are increasingly turning to foundations and corporations for financial support. But with so much competition for such funding, is there a way for your organization to stand out in a crowded field and improve your chances for success?
Join us when CD Publications presents “New Strategies for Winning Corporate Funding: Tapping Employee-Guided Giving,” a 75-minute information-packed audio conference designed to help you win a share of the billions of dollars corporate givers make available each year.
Employee-driven philanthropy enables employees at hundreds of companies to support organizations and causes that matter most to them. And because a growing number of businesses are using incentives to encourage employee involvement in charitable endeavors, organizations like yours are now in position to access their substantial resources, including money, material, and time.
We’ll show you how to retool your fundraising efforts to include employee directed giving -- one of the fastest growing trends in corporate support for a wide range of social programs. Indeed, workplace philanthropy is estimated at over $5 billion, but more than $10 billion in matching funds goes unclaimed every year, with many employees unaware their company matches donations.
