  • Trends in microgiving and consumer fundraising with corporate partners and call to action campaigns
  • Perspectives on aligning development functions such as individual giving and corporate fundraising
  • Reviewing innovative fundraising strategies such as collaboration with other nonprofits and joint applications
  • Best practices in online fundraising and social media fundraising

This group is only open to Columbia Business School alumni. Please contact us if you are interested in joining the network. If you have questions about the group or would like to recommend topics or speakers, please let us know. We welcome your feedback and suggestions. Thanks for your interest and we look forward to hearing from you.
