Companies are increasingly leading from a more civically and socially driven lens to respond the needs of local residents. Strategic partnerships are critical in supporting their efforts, and nonprofits are the gateway to those community connections. In a city with nearly 13,000 nonprofits, how do organizations stand out to secure public-private partnerships? Hear first-hand, in this two-part session what corporations are looking for and how nonprofit leaders are leveraging their mission to gain corporate partners and sponsors.
