Nearly 90 percent of Americans believe that businesses need to place at least an equal weight on society's interests as on business interests. At the same time, just 10 percent of consumers consider business cause marketing genuine. So, is philanthropic investment magic dust or just being nice? Can you increase your ROI through charitable giving? Our guest speaker Karen Davis will help you to solve two seemingly unrelated business challenges: Distinguishing yourself in competitive markets and responding to requests for philanthropic support from customers, friends, and vendors.

About the Speaker
Karen Eber Davis helps businesses use philanthropy as a propulsion tool to grow their performance and profits. She is the author of the book, 7 Nonprofit Income Streams.

Thank You to our 2016 Presidential Level Sponsors
