Engagement between Business and Community Organisations

Businesses who took part in a major research project reported that they support charitable organisations because it improves staff morale, customer relationships and their communities.

In turn, charities who enjoy strong relationships with business partners can often benefit from access to advice and support and other advantages that help them to carry out their charitable work.

The Report on Engagement between Business and Community Organisations was commissioned by the Department of Internal Affairs - Charities Services, and Creative New Zealand, and provides recommendations and resources helpful for both community and business organisations.
