Obtaining New Corporate Donors
Tuesday, August 31, from 1:00-1:30 pm EST
For many of us over the past year and a half, obtaining new corporate donors has been not only a challenge but, in some cases, not an option.

However, we are starting to see a shift in corporations looking to fund nonprofits that specifically align with their mission and brand. This webinar will delve into how to get in front of new corporate donors and discuss how to leverage those partnerships. View video here!

Given that, is an executive coach the right tool for your professional development? If so, how do you decide on a coach and what can you expect?
