Has your corporate support waned in recent years or are you struggling to take it to the next level? Are you seeking creative partnerships with local corporations but don’t know how to land them? Are you even aware of the vast resources your business community can yield for your nonprofit? If your organization has relied on corporate support in the past or is thinking about how to best approach businesses in a challenging economy, this webinar will be one you don’t want to miss. This session will discuss the challenges facing businesses today and how nonprofits can develop win-win situations to encourage corporate philanthropy despite those challenges. We will discuss how to approach corporate leaders, how to motivate them to become involved in your organization, and how to develop a corporate appeal in general.
Significant corporate support is given through gifts in kind, corporate sponsorships, and through the personal donations of individual corporate leaders. All in all, such support from the business community can provide a substantial percentage of the nonprofit’s overall goal. However many nonprofits fail to touch their local business community for a variety of reasons. Don’t let it happen to you! Please join Linda Lysakowski for step-by-step guidance on how to change your approach in order to garner corporate support, increase your credibility and ultimately raise more money from your business community.
