Course details: 

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.

In this workshop we’ll be taking a close look at 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.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Understanding Corporate Social Responsibility in Ireland

  • Sourcing potential sponsors and partners

  • Understanding what corporates want from charities and why they donate

  • Reporting and proving the impact of corporate investment

  • How to ask and what to offer

  • Managing corporate employee engagement.

In these days of declining grants and increasing competition for public donations, corporate philanthropy remains an important and not yet fully understood source of alternative funding - book your place for this workshop now and find out the precise reasons why.
