SQUEEZE PLAY: PHILANTHROPY IN A RECESSION
Learn how executives from philanthropic organizations are addressing the recession, how plans will or will not be impacted; as well as how smart companies are using CSR to drive their business forward.
In good times, philanthropic issues are on the top of everyone's minds - Americans are known to be some of the most giving people in the world. Whether it's a multi-billion dollar corporation looking to increase its C.S.R. programs or the individual businessperson that wants to make a difference in the world, philanthropic initiatives have increased by leaps and bounds over the last few decades. But as the economy slows and plunges into a deep recession, what are the ramifications for these organizations and how do they cope? How are companies using philanthropy efforts to drive their business forward. Such programs are needed now -- more than ever before.
Our stellar panel will also discuss giving models, international aid, raising awareness of issues, CSR and more.
