January 1 2016. We are entering our last month of a contract where we built a corporate giving program around a client's annual signature event. We focused on corporate sponshorships. As this is a new inititative for our client, we had to create the infrastructure to support this program including a database of businesses, sponsorship packet and publicity & social media plan. With this in place, our client can repeat the program next year with bigger and faster results.
