Achieving Mutual Benefit Through Corporate Philanthropy
Luncheon speaker advises listen first, negotiate second
Nationally, individual giving fell last year while corporate philanthropy was up 5.4 percent, according to Giving USA. That made AFP’s September 26 educational luncheon a particularly timely one. Consultant Joanne Ray’s insightful “Strategies for Mutually Beneficial Corporate Partnerships” set pens flying as the crowd of 80 attendees scribbled valuable notes.

If you’re like me, you probably joined without realizing how robust the resources are on both sides of that line. So I knew I had to share my findings as part of this ongoing “New Member Chronicles” blog I’m writing with fellow AFP rookie Ann Sebald. Ready? Here we go!

October is Ethics Awareness Month
Thinking beyond "The Code"
Is ethics in fundraising important? You bet: because we all have to raise trust before we can raise money! That’s why October is AFP's Ethics Awareness Month, and why an entire issue of Advancing Philanthropy is focusing on one topic from every angle: Ethics and boards. Ethics and donor names. Ethics around the globe. Ethics and self-care…and more…
