Corporate Partnerships and Charitable Giving


(Event is Full. To be put on waiting list, please email afranken@communityshares.com)


This session will provide an “inside view” on how two local corporations make decisions about charitable giving.  Members of the charitable giving committee at First Business Bank and M3 Insurance Solutions will share how they assess and decide what charities to support.  Fund Development staff and Executive Directors will gain valuable information on how to further develop their own organization’s plan for building corporate support.  Information from this training will help participants determine which corporations are most likely to be interested in their organization and what strategies work best when exploring a potential partnership.
