Organized by the Center for Nonprofit Learning
Unlike private foundation grants, corporate sponsorships typically come with fewer administrative burdens. However, nonprofit leaders often fail to bear in mind that sponsorship is a business deal, not a donation, and that successfully seeking sponsorships involves a set of skills that is quite different from other types of fundraising. This Summit will guide through the world of corporate sponsorship from A-Z. One can learn how to (i) get their organization ready for sponsorship, (ii) identify potential sponsors who might be interested in supporting their organization’s mission, (iii) effectively solicit potential sponsors, and (iv) keep the sponsorship dollars coming in after the first deal is made. The theme of the Summit is how to make corporate sponsorships a win-win arrangement for both sides.
