SOLD OUT: Corporate Volunteer Projects: How to Make Sure the Shoe Fits


More and more businesses are encouraging their employees to get involved in the community.  Team projects bring together a group of business volunteers to focus their combined energy, skills and talents to address a need in the community. Proper alignment between the business and nonprofit is crucial to ensure that volunteers are used efficiently on projects that support the nonprofit's mission. 

Benefits of team projects for your nonprofit are plentiful:

  • Raise awareness for your organization's mission and service
  • Provide big impact in a short amount of time
  • Complete a task which you might not otherwise have the resources to do
  • Form a strategic partnership with the business

Planning is key to a successful team volunteer project. At this seminar, you will learn how to engage a team of business volunteers to achieve your goals in a manageable and meaningful way.   

Attendees will have an opportunity to hear directly from four local businesses that frequently engage in team volunteer projects.
