LBG for Community


LBG for Community, supporting non-profit organisations with corporate-community partnership reporting, impact measurement and strategic partnership development, is now underway. 

The program is delivered via a series of three webinars. The next cohort will run from January / February to April 2018.  Participants will be introduced to the LBG for Community data collection tool, a simple input, output, impact framework for non-profits to use in reporting back to their corporate partners. The tool was refined following a pilot project with 18 community organisations in 2016, including The Smith Family, Benevolent Society, Cancer Council Australia and Plunket NZ. The revised tool now incorporates LBG’s social impact methodology, and also contains a new set of guiding principles for practitioners across non-profit and corporate sectors responsible for negotiating impact measurement, reporting and partnerships.

Organisations can nominate up to three people to participate. Upon completion, participants will be recognised as LBG Certified Community Partners, and will be entitled to one place at the LBG Annual Conference free of charge. The cost for participation in LBG for Community is $3,000 plus GST.
