Securing Corporate Partnerships

Posted by on January 26, 2009

Workshop explores corporate – nonprofit partnerships

The Foundation Center will offer a new course called Securing Corporate Partnerships on Tuesday, February 10th at the Hub City View, 30 South 17th Street in Philadelphia, 14th Floor.  This course will help participants understand the unique characteristics of corporate funders, how their giving differs from that of U.S. foundations, and where to make inroads to gain their support.

Instructor Greg King will explain why corporations contribute to nonprofits; the scope and characteristics of corporate resources available to nonprofits; how to identify and articulate their nonprofit’s assets and values to corporate partners; how to find corporate partners for various needs; corporate culture, hierarchy, and vocabulary; and strategies to prepare for and maintain a successful corporate partnership.

The course is applicable for six continuing education points for CFRE International initial or re-certification.  Participants will also receive a complimentary one-month subscription to Corporate Giving Online; a workbook outlining all course topics; and templates for worksheets used in the course.

The registration fee is $195.  Register online here.

Scholarships are available for small nonprofits.  To apply for a scholarship, go here.

Applications must be submitted five business days prior to course date. The special discount for additional registrations does not apply to scholarship recipients.
