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.
- What role are corporations playing in development? Insights in donations, in-kind contributions, and NGO engagement in their value chains and productions.
- How much is their giving and who are the major corporate donors?
- How to approach them and convince them to fund your project?
