We are entering a new era of corporate giving. Increasingly, corporate philanthropy is turning to new, less traditional models of funding and support to enhance their impact in the community and redefine the funder-grantee relationship.
In this new environment, how can corporate philanthropy professionals make the most of their valuable resources to address the critical issues facing our communities?
Southern California Grantmakers invites you to join us at Leveraging the Power of Corporate Philanthropy, an inaugural conference focused exclusively on the unique needs and opportunities facing corporate philanthropy.
The day will begin with a special keynote address by AEG President and Chief Executive Officer Timothy J. Leiweke on his vision for Southern California.
A morning panel with community leaders, moderated by Rick Wartzman, executive director of the Drucker Institute at Claremont Graduate University, will explore ways corporate philanthropists can most effectively support nonprofits and address social change. This session will be followed by an interactive discussion exploring issues around employee engagement, facilitated by Changing Our World.
Over lunch, national corporate social responsibility leader Kellie McElhaney will share the newest thinking on strategic alignment of corporate responsibility goals with creating a meaningful--and lasting--brand.
Attendees will also have opportunities to meet, learn and network with their colleagues in corporate philanthropy.
