NFP Forum on How Companies Measure Community Partnerships
12 February 2007 at 5:40 pm
Positive Outcomes is hosting to a free Not for Profit forum on the London Benchmark Group and how it’s changing the way companies in Australia and New Zealand measure, report and manage their community partnerships.
LBG Australia / New Zealand is a business membership organisation whose members commit to measuring and benchmarking their corporate community investment contributions using the London Benchmarking Group (LBG) methodology.
LBG is the international standard for measuring, benchmarking and reporting a company’s community contributions and achievements.
The model measures the inputs and outputs of the company’s community investment and offers a way to report on impacts over time.
By comparing inputs with outputs and impacts, a company is better placed to determine the effectiveness of its community investments.
LBG Australia/New Zealand produced the first local benchmark report in November 2006, covering $33 million of community contributions from 14 members. Membership is now at 23 and growing and includes companies such as
Woolworths, Babock and Brown, PwC, IAG, Energy Australia, CBA, and Cadbury Schwepps.
Join Positive Outcomes on February 20th to find out why companies are signing up to LBG, and how their current and potential Not for Profit partners can use the model to help build stronger relationships.
The Forum will cover:
– why LBG was developed
– how the LBG model works
– what it means for non-profit organisations in their partnerships with companies
