Join Jay Ziskrout and Leslie Myers of Charitable Checkout as they explore the new ways nonprofits and busineses can work together.

The predominant archetype of the nonprofit-business relationship has typically centered on nonprofits asking for economic and/or in-kind support, in exchange for corporate bragging points.

It’s time to re-engineer this stale model. There needs to be an evolved approach that more completely, and measurably, aligns the objectives of both nonprofits and business.

Jay and Leslie will discuss:

Incentivizing both giving and spending
Being better at giving credit where credit is due
Using digital media to generate positive reinforcement for donors and consumers
Why ‘Win-Win’ is not enough and how to create ‘Win’ for the public as well

Follow @FirstGiving, our tweets will include #FGWebinar.
