Forging Alliances with Corporations & Businesses

Monday, April 29, 2013  
9:30 AM - 12:30 PM

We all want to establish partnerships with businesses--large and small. Corporate dollars, business support, and employee volunteerism are valuable assets to any nonprofit's operations and bottom line. However, have you thought that you wrote the perfect grant request or developed the perfect program only to discover a rejection note in your e-mail box? Much has changed in the business world and writing a grant simply will not ensure successful relationships with major corporations or small businesses, even with those companies right in your organization's own backyard.

We are pleased to welcome back Rosemary Martinelli of Martinelli & Associates, Consultants. Ms. Martinelli is a marketing communications consultant, an adjunct professor at La Roche College and Penn State, as well as Lead Faculty/Area Chair of Communications/English for the University of Phoenix. Ms. Martinelli brings more than three decades of business marketing, media relations and communications, nonprofit consulting, and corporate philanthropy experience to this program.

Ms. Martinelli will share her own professional success stories and tips as well as lessons learned to this engaging, interactive and fast-paced session. You'll leave with new tools for your business/corporation fundraising and relationship-building toolbox!

The cost to attend this program is $20 per person, which includes a light continental breakfast. Registration is required by calling the Foundation Center at 412-622-6277.
