The Future of Corporate Community Investment


Claire Elizabeth Williams – Senior Manager, Corporate Citizenship Imagine Canada

Corporate community investment and CSR (corporate social responsibility) are evolving in response to ever-changing societal and business needs. This free webinar will provide insights into the future of corporate community investment and corporate-nonprofit partnerships.

Join us to explore emerging trends, leading practices, and results from Imagine Canada’s recent national survey exploring the expectations and perceptions nonprofit organizations have of their corporate partners. A recent Sage & Léger survey reveals that 63% of Canadians believe business should be doing more, with attention, in particular, to not only the dollars given, but how corporate partners engage with nonprofit partners.

Attendees will gain a deeper understanding of the challenges and opportunities facing corporate community investment in the years ahead, what it means for the ways your organization engages with Canadian companies, and how to evolve your partnership strategies.
