Business of Change: A Resource Guide for Corporate-Nonprofit Collaboration

The Gill Foundation has issued a resource guide to help nonprofits that promote LGBT equality secure corporate partnerships that complement their existing individual and foundation support. Business of Change: A Resource Guide for Corporate-Nonprofit Collaboration (109 pages, PDF) offers best practices for promoting corporate investment in LGBT-focused nonprofits as well as case studies of existing corporate-nonprofit partnerships. Before approaching a company about a partnership, the guide recommends that nonprofits consider several things, including the creation of guidelines to ensure that partners' missions, vision, and objectives are aligned and whether it is willing to co-brand aspects of the relationship.
