Communication is a key element to ensure that the full value of the corporate philanthropy work you do is recognized. Join us for this webinar, hosted by CMF in partnership with the Association of Corporate Citizenship Professionals (AACP), to explore the ins and outs of communication, how to craft effective messaging and share the great corporate philanthropy work that you do through various channels.

This program is part of the 2018 Corporate Giving Webinar Series presented by Indiana Philanthropy AllianceForefrontCouncil of Michigan Foundations, and Philanthropy Ohio. The series is designed for staff involved with corporate foundations, advised funds at a community foundation, or giving programs; but grantmakers of all types are invited to attend.

About Our Corporate Giving Webinar Series

Philanthropic associations from four Midwest states have collaborated to present this series of four webinars designed for companies with either a corporate foundation, advised fund at a community foundation, or a giving program. The series is intended to help business professionals think smarter and perform better when it comes to combining their corporate mission with philanthropic action.

Corporate philanthropy is an essential business function that helps support communities where companies are based, foster employee engagement, and generate business value. Individuals want to work for companies that support their communities, and consumers want to purchase goods from companies that are doing good in the world. The Midwest Corporate Giving webinar series offers data supporting the need for corporate philanthropy and development strategies to help giving programs succeed.
