9:00 AM - 12:00 PM


Join us for a discussion on taking corporate and nonprofit partnership relationships from transactional to transformational.


Nonprofits  are highly vigilant in securing corporate and business sponsorships for events, but how often do we sit down to really get to know the community’s corporations and businesses?

Learning Objectives:

At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to:

  • Identify the basic reasons corporations choose nonprofit partners
  • Define and articulate a corporate partnership package
  • Integrate at least two new strategies for conveying impact to corporate partners

Who should take this class?

Development and/or marketing professionals in the development field who are seeking a greater understanding of corporate and nonprofit relations and those who are preparing to launch a program designed to create meaningful corporate/nonprofit partnerships.

This workshop is included in the Nonprofit Management Certification series and fulfills three hours in the Fundraising competency area.

Cost:  $60
