Corporate Philanthropy and Engagement
Corporate philanthropy and engagement is an evolving space which is critical to the existence and operation of nonprofit organizations. The role of the private sector in helping nonprofits achieve their mission, serve their clients and realize their expected goals and outcomes is unique and very different from the role that government funders and individual major donors play. This course will provide a survey of key topics, trends and best practices within the corporate philanthropy, corporate social responsibility and grantmaking space, with a particular emphasis on public and private multinational organizations headquartered in the United States. This course is ideal for those with limited-to-no exposure or prior engagement with corporate institutions as grantmakers and partners and/or for those who work closely with corporate giving offices and philanthropy departments.
