Attendees will have the opportunity to explore valuable partnerships among higher education institutions, corporations, grant-makers, and various agencies, and learn how they can impact their communities by connecting resources to bring awareness and support for those in need. The proceeds from this event will help support Coastline’s scholarship programs and academic or student programs. Last year, over 200 guests attended the Corporate Social Responsibility luncheon summit which raised over $53,000.
