Webinar Video on Corporate Fundraising: Making an Effective Funding Case to Business

The webinar video on “Corporate Fundraising: Making an Effective Funding Case to Business” is now available online.

Corporations are increasingly becoming important development actors.  They are providing funding, in-kind goods and services, as well as unique opportunities of leveraging their business models and value chains for social development.  NGOs seeking innovative approaches and effective programs must engage with them.

However, it often seems that NGOs and corporations speak two different languages and look at the world with two conflicting perspectives.  This webinar explores practical tips for NGO managers to engage, work with, and obtain funding from corporations–while keeping social policies, ethics, and reputations intact.
