Companies gave nearly $17 BILLION to charities in 2015. Corporate giving represents approximately 5% of all private giving in the U.S.; yet corporate foundations provide more than 10% of all grants. And that’s not to mention the many other ways to secure funding from companies: corporate philanthropy programs, employee giving programs, matching gifts, loaned executives, donations, and many more.
Their giving is tied to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programs that integrate within the business model the concepts of profitability, environmental stewardship, and public benefit. CSR represents a triple-bottom line for the company, and it’s a concept with which all grant seekers must become familiar.
Why? Because competition for corporate support is fierce. We know that in grant competitions alone, some corporate funders receive thousands of applications. How can you make your case stand out from the pack?
In this interactive 60-minute webinar, our expert speaker Heather Stombaugh, MBA, CFRE, GPC, will discuss the four keys to securing corporate support: strategic alignments (specifically with CSR), marketing, recognition, and employee engagement. Heather will engage on the topic through case studies, polls, and Q&A session. Plus, you’ll get an easy-to-understand strategic alignment chart, list of appropriate recognition techniques, and URLs for recognition ideas. This session will help you get a fresh perspective and a new successful approach to corporate funding.
