LBG has recently announced a new partnership with Good2Give to help deepen corporate community investment in Australia and New Zealand.

Good2Give is a not-for-profit organisation that makes it easy for businesses and donors to give. Committed to building a more giving society, Good2Give advise businesses on how to engage with charitable organisations and provides technology solutions to efficiently and securely process their donations.

With a shared vision for high community impact programs, LBG has announced the partnership including an introductory offer to each other’s services. This will involve Good2Give providing a detailed report with a breakdown of all workplace giving data required for LBG’s framework, saving companies hours of analysis and data entry time.

The partnership was launched recently in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane as part of Good2Give’s corporate giving forums.

Good2Give CEO Lisa Grinham said, “This is about encouraging companies to implement programs that go above and beyond. If we’re going to see companies take leadership in the community and build their charitable footprint, it’s critical that they have easy access to the tools and expertise that make it possible.”

LBG Director Simon Robinson added, “Program measurement and workplace giving are both fundamental to any company’s community investment. Being able to offer employees Australia’s leading workplace giving platform is as much about extending the companies values as it is about supporting employees in their charitable pursuits.”

“It goes without saying that accurate measurement and benchmarking tools are imperative to making a business case for programs that reap rewards in our community and are resourced to do so. This new partnership makes it easier to benefit from these services through a holistic approach.” he said.

Ms Grinham said, “We’re looking forward to growing this partnership, building our clients’ community efforts and ensuring corporate community investment stays on an upward trajectory.”
