*Tips for Getting Started with Corporate Grant Seeking
Event Category 


Covid-19, its economic fallout, and the national reckoning on racism have caused many companies to beef up giving and reassess philanthropic priorities. In 2020, corporations gave $9.4 billion to nonprofits according to one study, and about three-quarters of it was cash. Will this generosity continue as the health and economic crises abate? As corporate grant making shifts, how should you adapt to tap into corporate support?

Learn how to navigate corporate giving now. You’ll learn how to make and keep connections to companies as the landscape changes, what’s important to these grant makers as they select grantees, and smart ways to convey impact no matter your cause.

Plus, don’t miss this chance to hear directly from the head of the Levi Strauss Foundation about why they support communities of color and the grassroots leaders who tackle inequities at the local level and why he wants more grant makers to follow their lead.
