Have a Potential Corporate Donor That’s on the Fence?
Try engaging the business’ employees in strategic volunteer opportunities. Having a business’ employees participate in area events and activities can prove to be both revelatory and enlightening; speaking volumes about the quality of your organization (management, staff and operations) as well as the impact of your nonprofit’s efforts on your target population and the greater community. If done correctly, the right volunteer experience may gain you a personal spokesperson as well as access to corporation’s dollars and networking pool.
