Today, corporate philanthropy has the opportunity to redefine purpose and value for corporate foundations and giving programs. Visionary leaders have demonstrated that when corporate philanthropy is managed as an investment in society, it can become a powerful catalytic force for change.
The Council on Foundations research publication Increasing Impact, Enhancing Value: A Practitioner's Guide to Leading Corporate Philanthropy proposes a redefined purpose and value for corporate foundations and giving programs. This study provides clear and practical paths forward for the future of the field and the role of corporate foundations, guided by a five-point framework.
Join us as results from the Guide, including an overview of the five Leadership Imperatives, are examined. Learn innovative ways to position corporate philanthropy programs to meet business needs as well as the pressing challenges of our times.
