Acquiring corporate donors can be an elusive process, and yet they are an important part of the funding mix. Corporate donors can fund initiatives that engage new audiences or programs that don’t fit traditional philanthropies. Learn how to develop compelling pitches, get creative about how corporations can support your mission, and identify strategies that grow partnerships rather than transactions.

Prerequisite: Creating a Theory of Change, Introduction to Individual Giving, Introduction to Proposal Writing, or equivalent experience
A working theory of change is key to all of the skills taught in our nonprofit management programs so we encourage participants to 1) bring a current theory of change or logic model to relevant workshops, or 2) attend a Creating a Theory of Change workshop before attending any other of our nonprofit management programs. If you’re unable to do either, please take some time in advance of your chosen workshop to consider your own program or organization’s purpose and goals. You may find a useful resource.
