Webinar: Community Foundations and Corporate Philanthropy

Over the past two years, 10 Community Foundations across Canada have worked together with Green Shield Canada to develop and evaluate a corporate philanthropy partnership model that builds on the strengths and resources of each. This model is collaborative and anchored by shared values. A toolkit has been developed to support Community Foundations of all sizes to adapt this approach. The webinar will provide an opportunity to introduce the toolkit and answer questions from interested CFs.
