Presented by The Not-For-Profit Council
Traditional philanthropy and the practice of granting “one-time gifts” (the nice to do) is being replaced with a more strategic approach (the need to do) as corporate grantmakers are being expected to deliver measurable impact on the business from their societal investments.
Learn the Evolving Trends in Corporate Giving from Diana Blankman, Head, Sanofi US Corporate Social Responsibility & President, Sanofi Cares NA, as they chronicle the important shift in strategy.
Discover how the pandemic has made an impact, and discuss why the power of partnerships, innovative programming, employee activism, and shared value should be part of every fundraiser’s daily vernacular.
