2017 Midwest Corporate Giving Webinar Series: Leveraging Grants Management for Effective Grantmaking
CNJG is pleased to offer this webinar series designed by our colleague Regional Associations from four Midwest states, who have collaborated to present this series of six webinars designed for companies with a corporate foundation, advised fund at a community foundation, or a giving program. This series specifically targets business professionals who want to think smarter and perform better when it comes to combining their corporate mission with philanthropic action.
Corporate philanthropy is an essential business function that helps support communities where companies are based, foster employee engagement, and generate business value. Individuals want to work for companies that support their communities, and consumers want to purchase goods from companies that are doing good in the world. The Midwest Corporate Giving webinar series offers data supporting the need for corporate philanthropy and development strategies to help giving programs succeed..
By the end of the webinars, participants should be able to:
1. Understand the concepts and strategies related to effective corporate giving strategies.
2. Connect with like-minded corporate giving professionals in Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, and Minnesota.
3. Utilize tools and best practices to design and implement effective corporate giving strategies.
Leveraging Grants Management for Effective Grantmaking

Join this webinar to gain clarity about what your organization should be tracking and how to use the information you gather with Libby Villavicencio, Executive Director of Outcomes Investing for The Rensselaerville Institute. In addition to sharing insights on how to move from a mindset of “funding” to “investing," Libby will share examples of a grant applications strategic framework, grant guidelines, application scoring based on Risk and Return, grantee interim and final reports, investment reports, and scorecards to help you put your knowledge into action with your giving program.
