Women Business Leaders Forum - Sept 22-24 Learn More

The Community Foundation of South Jersey (CFSJ) is inviting you to explore family business and its close connection to philanthropy.

Philanthropy is core to modern businesses’ brand and voice externally, allowing business owners to share their vision in a direct and tangible way.  A report from EY and Harvard Business Review indicates that organizations with a clearly defined purpose, which includes a philanthropy strategy, lead in growth and consumer satisfaction. These businesses have a reputation as champions for their community. Additional benefits are talent attraction and clarifying succession and legacy.

This is a networking event to learn tools and ideas for working with clients to incorporate philanthropy in your planning with them.
