Course description

Corporate Foundation and Board Governance

Ensure your corporate foundation is structured for success.

Foundations have long been an effective, popular vehicle for distributing corporate philanthropy; they enable companies to more easily give internationally, distribute scholarships and grants to individuals, and can be set up to endow corporate philanthropy to stabilize giving over time. Foundations are also administrative commitments which have legal and reputational ramifications for the company as well as the board of directors of the foundation.

All executive education courses with the Boston College Center for Corporate Citizenshipare taught by CSR experts from a variety of backgrounds, informed by over 30 years of constantly updated research, trends, and insights. Now, with online courses, you can gain the same corporate citizenship knowledge and tools on your own, without leaving your office.

As in all of our executive education programs, our goal is to help you know more so that you can use the assets of your business to do more and achieve more with your corporate citizenship programs—accelerating the business value you create for your company and the social value you create for us all.
