6th Annual Impact Forum

2007-2017: Celebrating 10 Years of Building Nonprofit Capacity

NetworkPeninsula 6th Annual Impact Forum
& 10th Anniversary Celebration!
Revisiting the Changing Role of
Corporate Philanthropy

December 7, 2017 – 11:30 am – 1:30 pm
Legacy Hall, Williamsburg

Join NetworkPeninsula as we revisit the topic of our very first Forum in 2012. Held after the Recession and at a time when nonprofits were struggling to survive, a panel of corporate leaders shared how their giving strategies changed post-Recession as local businesses faced their own challenges to remain profitable. This year, we will welcome a Panel of senior business executives who will discuss how their corporate giving strategies have continued to evolve, becoming more hands on, employee centered, service oriented, and impact focused.

  • Victor Branch, Bank of America, Virginia Market Manager, Senior VP, Enterprise Business and Community Engagement
  • Melissa Hazelwood, Ferguson Enterprises, Manager, Ferguson Cares
  • Charlie Marcotte, American Pride Automotive, Owner
  • Thomas J. Cosgrove, Newport News Shipbuilding, Manager, Corporate Citizenship & Government Relations
Panel presentations will be followed by round table discussions and sharing and discussion among the group as a whole. The Forum will be moderated by Terry Shannon, Executive Director of William & Mary’s Mason School of Business Executive Partner’s Program.

’s Annual Impact Forums bring together nonprofit leaders, community leaders, and senior-level decision makers from the public and private sectors to discuss emerging issues in the region. Presentations and round-table discussions serve to identify the impact of these issues in our work and in the community at large. Previous topics have included “The Changing Face of Corporate Philanthropy,” “The Overhead Myth,” “Generational Differences in the Nonprofit, Public, and Private Sectors,” “Intentional Philanthropy,” and “Employee Engagement & Social Impact.”

In 2016, our Forum welcomed more than 70 participants representing nonprofits, businesses, higher educational institutions, civic and faith-based groups, and government leaders from across the Peninsula.
