eLearning at Foundation Center


This annual corporate giving panel and luncheon, presented in partnership with the Development Executives Roundtable and San Francisco Business Times, highlights companies within our community that are dedicated to fostering a culture of giving. As the San Francisco Business Times’ Corporate Philanthropy supplement demonstrates every year, there are many generous corporations in the Bay Area that are committed to contributing their time and resources to worthy local nonprofit organizations.

Our panelists will discuss how their grantmaking and the Bay Area philanthropic landscape has evolved over the years, how corporate giving is baked into the business culture at their representative companies, and what they look for when seeking new nonprofit partnerships.

Attend this session in-person. 

After the panel presentation, you can participate in a question & answer session and network with other development staff from local organizations.

Lunch will be served, but we will no longer provide bottled water. We encourage you to bring your own beverage or bottle to fill up. $45 for general admission; $25 for DER members.

Watch this session via livestream.

If you can't attend in-person, watch the panel presentation live at Foundation Center's YouTube channel. Access instructions will be emailed to you. Free.
