Corporate Fundraising – Engaging Businesses to Boost Your Income

Corporate Fundraising – Engaging Businesses to Boost Your Income

Build your corporate sponsors, donors and partners by learning who to ask and how to ask.

Also, explore ways to engage companies and their staff to maximise their support. At present corporate Income and sponsorship represents just 2% of income fundraised in Ireland - but, when done well corporate sponsorship has the potential to be one of the most lucrative and cost-effective sources of income for your organisation.

The workshop will focus on the state of CSR in Ireland and what it means for your own organisation.

You’ll be learning about the cycle of corporate fundraising, from identifying potential partners and building relationships to asking for support. We’ll also look at how to maintain and maximise relationships with company partners.
