Foundation Directory Online II - Corporate Giving

  • Traverse Area District Library McGuire Room 610 Woodmere Avenue Traverse City, MI, 49686 United States (map)

Is your organization ready to seek corporate support? Corporate grantmakers are different from traditional foundations in many ways. This class provides a basic overview of the different types of corporate giving, what motivates corporations to give and how to find potential corporate partners. This training is located at the Woodmere Branch of the Traverse Area District Library, because they have a subscription to the FDO that is FREE to patrons and accessible on-site. This session will include a hands-on 45-minute exercise to help your organization determine if it is ready to seek corporate support and explore the in-depth data available through the Foundation Directory Online.

Pack a lunch and please bring your own laptop if you have one - a limited number of laptops will be available to borrow.
