Annually we seek sponsorship dollars for organizational support. Sometimes we’re successful in obtaining repeat sponsors, many times we are not. Why? Attract. Converse. Marry. Lessons learned from online dating: Define who you are and what you want; research your potential partner by reading their profile; meet, talk, ask questions about what a potential partner wants and introduce family and friends into the relationship! At Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden we’re working to create a culture of corporate philanthropy that moves us into a marriage. Learn more about this culture and the catalyst, the Healthy Employment Membership program.


This session is approved for 1 CFRE credit hour.
