    Corporations and What They Want in Today's World of Employee Engagement


    I haven't met you before, but how about a million dollars?" An outrageous ask, right?  And perhaps a bit of an exaggeration.  But why do fundraisers, who approach major donors so carefully feel it's ok to zing asks like this on potential corporate partners?  Approaching companies effectively means understanding what they value and what they want and need, just like that major donor you're cultivating.  In this session, you'll hear insights from a Corporate Social Responsibility professional who is on the receiving end of asks and, moreso, what companies value in today's competitive work world.  With this insight, you'll be better equipped to approach potential partners to work with your organization in new ways (hint: it's not just about the money).

    At the conclusion of this session, participants will:

    • Be familiar with the common mistakes fundraisers make when asking companies for money (so they can avoid that)
    • Understand what companies care about today (purpose, culture, employee engagement)
    • Be thinking bigger and more creatively about how to approach a company about a partnership

    August Brown Bag Lunch & Learn


    The Basics of Social Enterprise


    Today’s social service marketplace is increasing complex.  The regulatory environment is constantly changing, and government support continues to shrink. There are limits on how high fees can be raised.  The philanthropic market is increasingly competitive.  At the same time, you must serve more families in need!  


    In the right situation social enterprise can add value to your organization and your community while positively impacting your bottom line.


    Social enterprises are businesses whose primary purpose is the common good.  They use methods and disciplines of business and the power of the marketplace to advance their social, environmental, and human service agendas and positively impact their financial bottom line.  


    Learn how your nonprofit organization can evaluate if social enterprise is the right option for you and hear from the experiences of your peers.


    Participants will learn:

    • How do you develop a social enterprise program?
    • How do you implement a social enterprise?
    • How do you evaluate its effectiveness?
    • How do you help it to grow?
    • How do you create a dialog for your organization to consider if the time is right to create a Social Enterprise?
    • Who should attend: Any organization considering entering into the social enterprise arena.
