Business-Nonprofit Leadership Summit

The Business-Nonprofit Leadership Summit is an exclusive and free event for Institute Members and Nonprofit Affiliate Members focused on achieving successful corporate-nonprofit partnerships.

Each Summit includes the Satell Institute hallmark—moderated peer executive round tables, with a mix of for-profit, CSR and nonprofit leaders at each. Participants discuss and question the benefits and challenges of their partnerships, as well as strategies of how to gain additional partnerships of value. The “take home value” from the candor of the comments and the great experience of the participating executives makes for a memorable time and a valuable experience.

Business-Nonprofit Leadership Summit 2019 Highlights

Nonprofit Affiliate Programs

Million Dollar Match

Our nonprofit affiliates and ― by extension, our communities ― were the beneficiaries of the Satell Million Dollar Match Opportunity. On May 4, 2020, Ed Satell pledged $1,000,000 of personal funds through the Satell Institute to support Nonprofit Affiliates of the Satell Institute with this message:

“These funds are urgently needed by nonprofit organizations due to the extreme impact of the COVID-19 crisis. Nonprofits, who I see as the heroes of our society, must be able to carry out their important mission-driven purposes that are so vital to overcoming real problems that exist for people within the community.”

In a short space of days, the business and civic leadership of the region, Members of the Satell Institute, surged to meet Ed’s challenge.

The impact of this grand and proactive initiative is described best by our proud nonprofit affiliates who expressed their overwhelming gratitude using the words inspiration, goodness, energy, generosity, opportunity and partnership and is epitomized by these messages of appreciation from a few of our nonprofit affiliate leaders:

“Leaders like Ed Satell are listening to us and are doing everything that they can to help non-profits in this difficult time. Working together we will make it through this crisis.”
– Paul Kappel, CEO, Junior Achievement

“We are so very grateful for Ed’s ongoing support and for the meaningful way his leadership inspires others. He is truly like yeast, always causing others to rise.”
– Claudia Stowers, CFRE, CAP, Vice President, The Museum of the American Revolution

“This is amazing.  Ed is truly one of a kind.  My team and I will certainly find a donor willing to match Ed’s huge generosity.”
– Marcus Allen, CEO, Big Brothers Big Sisters

“This is such an exciting opportunity for so many non-profits. Bank of America’s continued investment in the Philadelphia Youth Network is a true testament to the power of corporate partnership with the nonprofit sector. We were beyond thrilled to learn that the Philadelphia Youth Network would be a recipient. Bank of America’s commitment to youth employment is amplified by this generous act. Their investment in my leadership enables PYN to grow as an anchor non-profit in Philadelphia.”
– Chekemma Townsend, CEO, Philadelphia Youth Network

So many Members were inspired to choose to contribute considerably more than their match to the Nonprofit Affiliate of their choice!  Almost $3,000,000 in funds went to more than 70 Nonprofit Affiliates!

This is Corporate Social Responsibility in action!

This is thinking WE, not just me on a grand scale!

Thank YOU for your generosity.

Stories of Courage
"As a board member of the Satell Institute, I find it illuminating to hear a donor’s perspective on where and why they contribute. All have made a significant four-year commitment to a nonprofit, including our museum. Each has a unique CSR way. And each is figuring this out. It’s an honor to hear and learn their approach as well as their successes and concerns. The Think Tank and educational material, such as the Massive Online Open Course done with the University of Pennsylvania, provides expertise from a range of CSR thought leaders whose insights are relevant to our work."
Gwen Borowsky
CEO, The National Liberty Museum
“Bottom line. For a non-profit to be successful, it must have a business mindset. Successful corporate partnerships in the non-profit world, specifically those with a 'win-win' scenario are a blend of the right fit, a mutual understanding of both organization’s goals and expectations, and ideally a multi-year commitment."
Larry Dubinski
CEO, The Franklin institute
“Oh, it’s unique, and I mean it, it’s such a unique opportunity for the business leaders who run this city to meet with the nonprofit leaders, to have conversations, to share ideas and to get to know each other. To sit in a room with CEOs and have a conversation on mission. On their vision, why do they do it. I have to tell you; these executives don’t just talk. They invest. And I see the benefits in two ways— “mind share” and funding. The biggest change I’ve noticed in CSR is the emergence of the Satell Institute. He didn’t have to do any of this—he wants to make this world, make this city—a better place. So, I say God bless Ed Satell and generous corporate people like him. It’s been amazing."
Andrea Custis
CEO, The Urban League of Philadelphia
