You may want to ask a Development staff person, whoever handles corporate relationships, to take the lead on managing this one.
The time for creative thinking is now! Many of the companies that offer us work crews are also corporate donors. Some volunteer managers feel that it won't be long before large corporate donors ask us how they can involve their employees with TNC. In addition, the company volunteers could be great resources for future on-call professionals with skills or connections you can use. Finally, as the Conservancy's community-based work matures, working with corporations will become increasingly important. We will continue to get requests and might even consider seeking the relationships ourselves. A good relationship with a large company in a small town will have lasting effects for your chapter.February 27, 2011
