Don't forget to register here as well. Keep a look out for me as I will have my name tag on. 

Event details and link to register.

In a lagging economy, corporations get creative to achieve the most bang for their charitable buck, and the result is a variety of unique methods to lend a helping hand. Stacy Palmer, Editor of the Chronicle of Philanthropy, reveals which giving is most helpful to grantees and which is obsolete. Dr. Len Schlesinger, President of Babson University, tells us how businesses find causes that resonate with stakeholders, while Jim Koch, Founder of The Boston Beer Company, provides a prime example of innovative corporate philanthropy through his “Samuel Adams Brewing the American Dream” program. With moderator George Donnelly, Editor of the Boston Business Journal, they discuss fascinating new corporate giving trends.

    Hi everyone! I'm new to this group (and to Boston) and was wondering how it is that you go about fundraising for a good/non-profit cause? I just moved here and will be riding in the Rodman Race for Kids w/ my team over at the Massachusetts General Think: Kids Program in the Dept. of Psychiatry and am looking for ways to spread the word about fundraising for our annual event (next weekend). Please, if you have any experience with raising funds for these types of events please do share with me some insights into how this works. I'm a clinician who does direct-care on a daily basis so I'm less knowledgeable about the business end at this point in my early career! Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for your thoughts, referrals to resources, or any kind contribution you can make toward the compassionate care of every child in Boston.
