How Partnerships Deliver Social Impact

Partnerships across the social, public, and private sectors often play the most powerful role in addressing the toughest societal challenges.

Working with Nonprofits to Solve Big Problems

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. BCG helps make that cooperation happen and guide it to coordinated action toward achieving a shared goal.

BCG's Global Social Impact Partners

BCG’s conviction that we can all do more together than we can ever do on our own has led us to make a long-term corporate commitment to collaborate with six major social sector organizations around the world:

We help these organizations develop their capabilities, improve their organizational effectiveness, and better deliver on their missions.

BCG’s Impact in the Community

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.

Improving the Social Impact of the Public Sector

BCG also works with governments and other public sector organizations to improve their social impact in areas ranging from education to economic development to environmental sustainability.

BCG has developed this diagnostic tool to assess the relative well-being of citizens in countries around the world. See where your society stands.

The Importance of Public-Private Partnerships

BCG is convening public-private partnerships to create system-wide solutions to some of the world’s biggest problems, including global epidemics, access to clean water, the development of sustainable food systems, and initiatives for urban economic inclusion.
