DESCRIPTION

In September, 2013, VolunteerMatch hosted a webinar that covered the key ingredients for a successful corporate-nonprofit volunteer partnership. The session was so popular, we've brought you back for round two! In this special session dive into how nonprofits and businesses can increase both the breadth and depth of these cross-sector relationships. Join VolunteerMatch for a special joint edition of the Nonprofit Insights and Best Practice Network webinar series, as we welcome back three experts in corporate-nonprofit partnerships who present from multiple perspectives: Nonprofit consultant Mazarine Treyz represents the small nonprofit viewpoint, Desiree Adaway of The Adaway Group provides the voice of large organizations, and Amanda Lenaghan from the Charles Schwab Foundation presents the corporate angle. Viewers walk away with new knowledge, practical strategies and tactics, as well as concrete resources and handouts. Whether you work at a nonprofit or a corporation, this webinar will enable you to move your program to the next level through successful partnerships.
