Nonprofit and charitable organizations are continuing to struggle to fulfill their missions and serve their clients and communities. Corporations must focus on making a profit.
Both groups are continuing to struggle as the recession comes to an end. But where is the middle ground where nonprofits and corporations will and can meet to help serve those in their communities that need assistance?
This will be the topic during the next Community Service Public Relations Council monthly luncheon. It will be a join meeting with the International Association of Business Communicators (IABC). The panelists:
- Kasey Bergh, Community Relations Manager, Nestle Purina Foundation
- Mary McMurtrey, President, Gateway Center for Giving
- Lucie Springmeyer, Senior Vice President, Forest Park Forever
The panel will discuss the current state of corporate giving and opportunities for community collaboration in the St. Louis area, plus provide some solid takeaways. Marketing and communications directors are encouraged to invite their President/Executive Director to attend.
