Course description

Congratulations on taking the first step to better communicate with your Corporate Partners.

  • A new process for prospecting and understanding how corporate partners can benefit from your nonprofit.
  • A system to engage corporate partners in ways that drive meaningful benefit for your organization.
  • A worksheet and scatterplot tool to visualize where you're generating the most benefit, and plan your work load for greatest efficiency.
