I have added a new page on case studies of NGO-corporate partnerships. In researching the information for my book I have spent a lot time trying to find case studies and interviewing people in the midst of these relationships. If you have a case study that you would like to share, I would be glad to include it.
The partnerships are defined by four levels, although they often ebb and flow between levels as they evolve.
Resource Exchange (Philanthropy): includes the exchange of financial resources (money), skills (people), in-kind goods/services (things)
Transactional (Fee for service) includes fee for a specific service with clearly articulated deliverables (e.g., audit, research)
Joint Programming: builds on the strengthen of the organizations to create new value that benefits both (e.g., licensing, Franchising, Co-Branding)
Integrated Programming: occurs when organizational missions become interdependent
