In Search of Corporate Sponsorships
Corporate giving was up 3.5% last year, according to Giving USA. How can civic leadership programs capitalize on that trend? This webinar will explore what works, what doesn’t and what we can try in terms of offering corporate sponsors benefits that they see are worth the investment.
• Understanding your corporate sponsor – what’s in it for them
• Key ingredients to a benefits package
• Closing the loop – how well did it work?
Come with questions. More important, come with examples to share, what you have learned and what are you thinking of trying next.
Presenters will include Michael Bennett, VP of External Affairs, Cleveland Leadership Center.
