November 17, ETBP Business Forum at the Twin Cities United Way

November 17, 2016 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

The next ETBP Business Forum is scheduled for Thursday, November 17, at the Twin Cities United Way – 404 S. 8th Street.  This is another joint event with our partner organization the Minneapolis Downtown Council.

This special forum will focus on emerging trends in philanthropy. Minnesota has earned a reputation of having high civic consciousness undergirded by a robust landscape of diverse philanthropic organizations. Resources are not endless, though, with more and foundations refining their award metrics and businesses reaching for greater connections between gifts and engagement with their employ base, and not merely writing a check.

The panelists will trace the pathways of financial gifts by discussing both broader trends and specific approaches of their respective organizations. Special guest tech sales company, “DIVI UP” will provide a discovery moment about the convergences of technology and point of sale giving.

Please RSVP to [email protected] by Monday, November 14, at Noon.  There is no cost to attend this business forum.  A big thank you to our sponsor for this month’s event BKV Group.
