Crain's Focuses on the Nonprofit Sector + Corporate Giving; Includes DF Members + Partners

Monday, August 23, 2010

Crain's logo It is no secret that discussion about the nonprofit sector has been increasing since this economic recession began. Crain Communications Inc. is no different. In the August 16, 2010 issue, they focus on the nonprofit sector. Discussing everything from corporate funding to emerging giving trends, Crain's dissects philanthropies and released its annual list of corporate giving, which included many Donors Forum Members.  The lead story on the Focus section of the Crain's Chicago Business website quotes Donors Forum President & CEO, Valerie Lies.

RELATED RESOURCES FROM DONORS FORUM: Find more on Donors Forum’s website about corporate giving. Nonprofits interested in engaging corporate volunteers and securing corporate support should attend Building Strategic Relationships with Corporations and Foundations on August 19, 2010.  One of the 21 shared interest groups that Donors Forum convenes on behalf of grantmaking Members is The Corporate Committee.  Members can log in to find more information on The Corporate Committee here.  I invite grantmakers interested in joining Donors Forum, its Corporate Committee, and other shared interest groups to contact me at 312-578-0090.
