Event Description

Recruit Corporate Support for Ongoing Operations & Special Events

A fact of life for non-profits is that you need corporate partners. That’s true both for on-going operations and special events. What’s also true is that the number of non-profits competing for corporate partners is higher than ever. To grab attention and needed funding, you must target the right partners, hone your message, and create a compelling opportunity.

Easier said than done? Join fundraising pro Shiree Skinner to learn how to thrive in the competitive world of corporate partnerships—and secure the support your program requires. Skinner will unveil winning strategies for wooing deep-pocketed partners and show you how to present your proposal to the right corporate partners at the right time.

Plus, you’ll know which solicitation styles you should consider using. Don’t rely on what may have worked in the past—to succeed in today’s funding-shortage environment, you need future-forward skills.
