Recent Conference Board research shows that many companies are reducing their giving budgets in 2009, making fewer and smaller grants, re-examining focus areas, and increasing employee engagement programs. In this webcast, we will go beyond the statistics and hear directly from companies on how they are adjusting their contributions programs in response to the current economic downturn. Participants in this webcast will join representatives from FedEx and Morgan Stanley for a discussion of this very timely issue.

This webcast will discuss:

  • Innovative uses of non-cash resources
  • Ways to engage employees in community involvement efforts during a time of downsizing, budget cuts, and higher-than-normal stress levels
  • Methods to refocus giving to address critical community needs
  • How to develop and implement an exit grant strategy
