Aren’t sure whether corporate fundraising makes sense for your organization

This workshop is an ideal first step towards establishing – or fine-tuning – a corporate fundraising strategy that will help further your mission and increase your impact.

Boards = critical to corporate fundraising success

For your corporate fundraising program to be a success, your Board of Directors needs to understand the opportunity, what’s possible – and what makes sense – for your organization, and most importantly their (critical!) role in that success, which why we encourage you to invite yours to join you for this session. :

“Your presentation about corporate philanthropy was insightful and timely. At times development professionals think securing major gifts from ‘the big corporate company’ can be daunting. You made us realize that our goals are achievable with the right approach and plan in place.”

Jerry Lawlor

CFRE President, Waterloo Wellington Fundraising Executives

When you sign up you will receive our Corporate Fundraising for Boards e-Book which includes:

  • The different types of corporate fundraising and how to do them successfully
  • Assessment tool to determine whether corporate fundraising makes sense for your organization
  • Board roles and responsibilities with a plan for action
  • Milestones and concrete steps to get ready for corporate fundraising

Special Bonus! You will also receive our Corporate Fundraising Policy Template!

You might be asking yourself…why now? Aren’t companies in a recession?

The answer is, while there are some companies that are struggling, others are stepping up. 

There are many companies whose workflow is disrupted and are therefore MORE AVAILABLE than ever for conversations with non-profits.

Which makes this the perfect time to reach out with relevant opportunities!

If you’re still thinking your non-profit has NO RELEVANT OPPORTUNITIES right now, let’s use this time to figure out a strategy for when things re-open, establish connections, and build materials so your team is ready when the time is right.

With so much in flux, now is the perfect time to ASSESS, ADJUST and TAKE ACTION!

This workshop will provide you with everything you need to make that happen. And if you still have questions after you’ve watched the webinar, we’re here for you.

Heather with cell

“Heather has incredible insight into the corporate sponsorship space.  She helped our Board shape our strategy and develop a realistic view on the level of commitment and resources necessary to build a successful corporate sponsorship program. She also helped us set timelines and financial targets to avoid the pitfalls of either under- or over-budgeting for corporate support.”

Michelle Dodokin

Board Director

“Collaborating with Heather and BridgeRaise was a true benefit in helping a client’s board of directors redirect and refocus their corporate fundraising program. Heather took the time to educate herself on the Board’s background and their interest in corporate fundraising, presented suggestions for moving forward which were backed by facts, examples, and case studies, and made sure to listen and respond to the Board’s questions and concerns. Not only did the Board walk a way with a better understanding of corporate giving and a new direction for a plan forward, but I too learned more about corporate giving and the power of collaboration.”
