Vision

Business for Better Society (BBS) exists to make giving ethical and easy, while building partnerships for purposeful and sustainable impact.

Mission Statement

As a global foundation, BBS promotes and facilitates excellence in giving and mentoring. We match corporations and individuals, their funds and/or skills, with purposeful, sustainable and high impact nonprofit initiatives. Through our work we create responsible partnerships and support a culture of accountability, innovation and greater effectiveness in the nonprofit sector. We have no religious or political affiliations.

Building connections ONE person at a time

What We Do

  • Enable corporations and individuals to give in an ethical and impactful way;
  • Support and match deserving nonprofit organisations with resources and capacity building to generate effective and sustainable impact;
  • Serve as a centre of excellence for generating and disseminating best practices in corporate social giving and public-private partnerships.

Values

We value individual and corporate social responsibility

We believe that it is the responsibility of corporations and individuals to contribute to sustainable development and positive societal change.

We value integrity, credibility, accountability and transparency

We seek excellence in what we do and how we do it by utilising best practices, innovation and constant learning. We practice accountability to all of our stakeholders and adhere to the highest standards of due diligence and transparency.

We value different forms of giving

We believe giving exists in different forms: financial resources, mentorship, technical support, volunteering, training, internships, practical supplies and any number of other ways.

We work towards global impact

We believe that being truly global entails working not only in the developing world.

We value measuring and reporting on our impact

We recognise that not all impact is readily visible or easily quantifiable. However, we will use both quantitative and qualitative evaluation and monitoring methodologies to measure and assess our work.

What Makes BBS Unique

Global Network

Our diverse global business network and our relationships at the highest levels of these organisations;

Sustainability

Our commitment to partner with non-profit organisations not because of their sector of focus, but based on how they work to generative positive and sustainable impact;

Tranparency

Our promise that 100% of donations received go directly to grants and programs, not to administration;

Reporting

Our commitment to combine grant giving and/or long term sustainable capacity-building, always reporting impact assessments and lessons learned to all stakeholders;

Structure

Our organisational structure allows for advice, guidance and accountability from a diverse range of globally influential stakeholders;

Learning

We operate within a culture of learning, innovation and experimentation, encouraging risk-taking and generating learning from both successes and failures to shape our future work;

How We Work

We leverage our network of corporate relationships to match available sponsorship resources with the most suitable, high potential, credible and vetted nonprofits. In addition to identifying and providing funding to nonprofit organisations, we provide tailor-made capacity-building support, mentorship and access to best practices as well as impact assessment and reporting. We believe in creating connections among our grantees by establishing a network of innovative and impactful organisations and individual change-makers that will be able to support each other and share experiences, even after BBS direct support period comes to an end.

When it comes to identifying purpose driven, high potential, nonprofit organisations who would benefit from additional financial and/or technical support., this identification process can be BBS driven or via introductions from our partners. Once a potential nonprofit has been identified, we work with each organisation in the following manner:

 

1

Assess

Assessment phase to determine whether a nonprofit organisation qualifies for support and to determine their needs.

2

Accompany

Accompanying phase to bring like-minded donors and nonprofits together on impactful projects, entailing any combination of funding, capacity building, resourcing, strategic guidance and/or technical support.

3

Monitor

Monitoring and evaluation phase to keep stakeholders informed and projects on track.
