A kick-off to the 2013 Corporate Funders Professional Development Series
GRANTMAKERS of Oregon and Southwest Washington and The Council on Foundations invite corporate philanthropy practitioners to engage in a leader-to-leader conversation to learn innovative ways to transform corporate philanthropy to meet the needs of business and the pressing challenges of our times.
Corporate philanthropy has an opportunity to redefine the purpose and value for corporate foundations and giving programs. Visionary leaders in our field have proven that when corporate philanthropy is managed as an investment in society, it can become a powerful catalytic force for change!
Join us as we bring Dinah Waldsmith Dittman, National Director of Community Engagement, Kaiser Permanente and Kim Young, Director of Corporate Services, Council on Foundations to kick-off the 2013 Corporate Funders Learning Exchange Professional Development Series. Through this series we will explore Increasing Impact, Enhancing Value: A Practitioners Guide to Leading Corporate Philanthropy more in depth. The study provides clear and practical paths forward for the future of the field and the role of corporate foundations guided by a five-point framework. Funders are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the guide which can be found at www.cof.org/corporateguide. Corporate philanthropy leader, by realizing the value of corporate contributions beyond funding and developing an investment portfolio model that aligns giving and rallies corporate assets, can benefit society and drive business success.
