Corporations’ median philanthropic giving last year was $20.7 million, with six out of ten companies increasing their giving over time. How do these corporations make their decisions as to which local and national nonprofits to support? And who are the decision makers?

In this workshop, learn the most effective tactics for approaching companies for funding, including determining who to approach, when to approach them, and the best strategies to build relationships with corporations. As we discuss the secrets to unlocking corporate funding, we’ll answer the following questions:

  • What motivates corporations to give?
  • How do they give?
  • When is the best time to approach a company?
  • What causes do companies support?
  • What are the trends in corporate giving?
