Partnerships and Philanthropy

Corporate Fundraising

Partnering for long term impact

Tuesday 07/07 | 09:00 - 09:00 | Online

Corporate Foundations are known for their risk-averse approach to funding, and many operate in isolation from their parent company. The partnership between the Berkeley Foundation and Crisis has broken the mould, extending well beyond transactional funding. Through taking a highly collaborative approach, we have influenced policy and practice at a local level, leveraged meaningful in-kind support, delivered job brokerage, and secured backing from the Foundation?s parent company. This is the first partnership of its kind for Crisis, and together with the Berkeley Foundation, we?ll share how we overcame challenges and maximised opportunities to grow the partnership. We'll talk about the lessons we have learnt, our joint approach to managing risk and uncertain outcomes, and how we agreed and communicated objectives with stakeholders from the public, voluntary, private and sectors. This session is relevant to any fundraiser that wants to develop deeper and more strategic relationships with existing or new corporate partners.
