• ABOUT CORPORATE GIVING NETWORK

    We believe that the skill in securing corporate funding must be practiced

ABOUT CORPORATE GIVING NETWORK

The Corporate Giving Network is an educational, professional development and networking group for nonprofits that seek to increase funding and support from the business community.

We help business professionals and executives find seats on nonprofit boards.

What is Corporate Giving?

Corporate Giving is a type of fundraising where the donation comes from a business, not an individual.   It is different from other areas such as annual giving or grant writing in that the skill set needed to be successful requires an ability to engage in a conversation with a business person on the subject of alignment of business objectives for a mutual gain. The business benefits through improved brand reputation at minimum while the nonprofit gains support in the area of employee volunteering and funds.

About Corporate Giving Network

Joy Stephens, Founder and CEO of o 2 joy, a consulting firm for not-for-profit organizations, created Corporate Giving Network when she realized the need for a space where those engaged in corporate giving could go for peer networking, education and skills training.

  • Board MatchMaking Service

    Corporate Giving Network has put together a comprehensive Board MatchMaking service to find a great match for both the nonprofit and the forprofits. We invite nonprofit organizations and forprofit companies to click here to learn more!

  • Corporate Connections

    The Corporate Giving Network group meets monthly on the second Thursday at noon to discuss the trends, challenges and best practices of corporate giving. We invite a corporate funder (the decision maker) to describe how their company gives back and what it takes to get a grant and/or sponsorship from them.
