Partnerships across the social, public, and private sectors often play the most powerful role in addressing the toughest societal challenges.
The key for nonprofits to deliver superior social impact is effective cooperation—inside the organization, with other nonprofit institutions, and with partners in the public and private sectors.

Additionally, our offices partner with a broad cross-section of local nonprofits and NGOs—totaling more than 300 social impact projects across the firm every year. Each BCG office chooses the issues it focuses on and the organizations it partners with. This sampling of our local relationships spotlights a few representative efforts from each region. BCG's local involvement takes many forms, including consulting projects, thought leadership, and volunteer activities.
