Strategic Giving for Corporations

Join SMPS Alaska for our next luncheon on October 15 for a discussion about strategic giving!

Does your firm struggle with how to use corporate giving to its fullest potential? Are you donating money to several organizations with no clear focus or specific goals? Does your firm have issues with employee participation and buy in? With a little help, you can create a more focused strategic giving plan with measurable outcomes that will strengthen your firm’s marketing and business development efforts.

Join us for this program that will take you step by step through the economic impact of non-profits in Alaska, the benefits of a strategic giving program, case studies of successful corporate giving campaigns, and how board service can contribute to your marketing and business development efforts. This panel discussion will include Dennis McMillian, President and CEO of the Foraker Group; Christopher Schutte, Executive Director of the Anchorage Downtown Partnership, Ltd.; and Jessica Taft, Marketing Director at Enterprise Engineering, Inc.

During this program you will learn:

  • The benefits of strategic corporate giving for A/E/C firms
  • How to sync your business development efforts with corporate giving
  • Ways to measure ROI on corporate giving campaigns
  • The economic impact of non-profit organizations in Alaska

Register below by Monday, October 13th.
