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


The Corporate Giving Network is an educational, professional development and networking program for nonprofits that seek to increase funding from the business community. Additionally, we assist for-profits with corporate social responsibility planning.

What is Corporate Giving?

Corporate Giving is a type of fundraising that is very different from other areas such as individual giving, or grant writing. The skill set is unique in that the fundraisers must have a sense of business acumen, can engage in a conversation about the business community and be prepared to have that conversation using business jargon. The ‘ask’ is more akin to a professional sales approach than a storytelling approach that is typically used when an individual giving ask is made.

About Corporate Giving Netowork

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 nonprofits organizations and forprofit companies to click below to learn more!

  • Learning@Lunch

    The Corporate Giving Network group meets monthly on the second Thursday at noon to discuss the trends, challenges and best practices of corporate giving. Often a subject matter expert is invited to present – other times it is facilitator guided peer learning.

  • Annual Conference

    Learning@lunch is a great time for quick learning experiences. However, a majority of the topics we cover need more time for a deeper understanding. Corporate Giving Network’s day-long conference provides the opportunity for a more thorough session on important corporate giving topics.

    Conference Topics May Include:

    • Corporate Philanthropy
    • Cause-Related Marketing
    • Sponsorship
    • Employee Engagement
    • Workplace Giving
    • Business Acumen 101
    • Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)
