Past speakers at the Philanthropy Club have often stressed that philanthropy encompasses more than money, and corporate relationships involve more than grants. Come to the December Philanthropy Club program to learn more about the nationwide corporate responsibility movement that includes concepts such as “business with purpose,” “sustainable business goals,” “social responsibility,” and “cross-sector partnerships.”
Among the top-notch business schools training students to understand these concepts is Loyola University’s Baumhart Center.
Our presenters, Seth Green and Gwendolyn Y. McNutt will enrich our understanding of the many ways that nonprofit organizations can more successfully interact with corporations committed to social responsibility.
