David Hessekiel, Nancy R. Lee – both leading experts on marketing and social programing – and marketing guru Philip Kotler joined forces to write a practical guide to implementing effective corporate social initiatives. The authors explain what corporate social responsibility (CSR) is and how its landscape has changed over the last 20-odd years. They suggest how to establish the best relationship between your firm’s goals and the goals of a charitable campaign. Then they identify six types of initiatives and add illustrative case studies to show how each one works. The examples are interesting, relatable and moving. getAbstract recommends this guide to marketing executives, PR representatives, corporate donors and nonprofit professionals. But beware: You may become so inspired that you’ll want to jump right in.
