Cross-sector partnerships pay social dividends

Alliance magazine

The product of a collaborative research effort by a group of business schools in Latin America, the Harvard Business School and AVINA Foundation, Social Partnering in Latin America, draws lessons from 24 cases of cross-sector partnerships spanning the hemisphere, and analyses how businesses and non-profits are creating partnerships to move beyond traditional corporate philanthropy.

Examples of such partnerships include an American supermarket and a Mexican food bank, an Argentine newspaper and a solidarity network, and a Chilean pharmacy chain and an elder care home. The authors analyse why and how such social partnering occurs, and how to maximize the value for participants and society.
