With the evolving coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis, we know it’s a challenging time for everyone. 

In recent years, corporate giving and volunteering has been on the rise, as is competition for companies’ attention and resources. As corporate social responsibility (CSR) programs become more specific and strategic, nonprofits that craft customized partnership strategies are the most successful in securing corporate funding. 

Given the changes and challenges the coronavirus (COVID-19) has brought to our sector, nonprofits considering corporate funding as a revenue stream need to be more focused and strategic than ever in their approach. This session will cover how to prospect companies for partnership, build corporate relationships, and design/pitch customized partnerships that meet the needs and interests of all parties.


  • Build a targeted and strategic corporate prospect list  
  • Plan a unique cultivation strategy for each prospect on your list 
  • Craft a customized partnership pitch for prospects that have shown interest through cultivation

Hospitals are attracting hundreds or even thousands of donors to your hospital during the COVID-19 crisis. But now what?

How are you going to keep these new donors engaged and connected – and giving?

How can you sort who is a one-time donor and who will stay for the long-haul – through 2020 and beyond?  Who should you invest time and resources into and how do you anticipate the needs and connections as we move through contingency into recovery?

In this webinar, we will review the key areas of focus for hospital foundations to help you inspire these donors to give again, connect in a deeper way and stay with you.  

Through multiple examples and case studies, we will share how others have been facilitating on-boarding, bridging to mission priorities and engaging people to do more in preparation for Q4 and 2021.  We will demonstrate how your new donors, who have been inspired to your front-line cause during the COVID-19 crisis through multiple sources, are not like your previously new donors.  And we will demonstrate the key to donor experience, as so many have given through digital channels.

If you have been successful in attracting new supporters to your hospital, then you owe them and yourselves to do everything you can to increase your engagement with them, inspire them to give again and move into higher value giving.  Please join us for this important discussion about sustained long-term growth for your health care organization.
