New Strategies for Increasing Corporate Support to Nonprofit Organizations
A Management Education Conference for Nonprofit Executives and Board Members
March 16–19, May 4–7, and September 21–24, 2014 :: Charleston, South Carolina
Administered by Business & Nonprofit Strategies, Inc.
The New Strategies conference will focus on how to design and market corporate-nonprofit partnership concepts that are a win-win for all involved. Here are some of the topics covered by this fast-paced meeting:
- Sponsorships: "Old-fashioned" corporate giving may be slowing down, but sponsorships are growing fast.
- Cause-related marketing: 76% of consumers say they would buy from retailers known to support good causes, and that helps explain the popularity of cause-related campaigns.
- Product donations: Driven in part by tax incentives, this aspect of corporate philanthropy is definitely on the rise.
- Dinners and events: They can be extraordinary successes in some cases and money losers for nonprofits in other instances.
- Predictive analytics: Using new data technologies, grantmakers and grant recipients can now more accurately forecast what impact a contribution will have.
- Basic research grants: An overlooked revenue stream for many nonprofit organizations.
- Memberships: When and why they appeal to some corporations but not to others.
- Managing the corporate grant: Techniques to get the most out of a corporate contribution.
- Designing corporate-nonprofit partnerships: Specifics on how to construct the right relationship for both parties.
- Volunteerism and pro bono services: How non-cash options can be the forerunner to other forms of corporate support.
