Why should a corporate partner with organization?

Why CBM?

We are the single largest NGO working in the sector of disability across India .The uniqueness of CBM lies in our working model–we seek sustainability, scalability, accountability, transparency, credibility and effective leadership while delivering programmes. This working model has made us one of the most sought after NGO today in the disability sector. Our partners include Wipro Cares, HDFC, CRISIL, ONGC, Sonata Software, Bharathi Cement, Thomson Reuters among few.


Diverse Set of Thematic Areas:

Action in CSR largely spans a diverse set of thematic areas – health, education, livelihood, poverty alleviation, women empowerment, child development, environment, water, housing,  and microfinance. In general, it was found that while some companies narrow their focus on a few thematic areas, others have a broader view. In CBM, we undertake a larger scope of thematic areas to create wider and long term impact. Our strategy is community-based inclusive development.

 

Wide Geographic Spread:

Partnering with CBM allows companies to execute programme in their ‘Impact’ areas, with our centres across 26 states in India.

 

Well-defined Projects:

CSR is no longer defined by how much money a company contributes to charity, but by the impacts of the programmes supported. CBM’s expertise in planning and implementing programmes helps us offer well-defined development programmes with clear objectives and outcomes. While planning the proposal, beneficiaries, especially people with disabilities are involved so that the project reflects strong qualities of participation and community ownership. We also take inputs from the donors through discussions and research on donor priorities while developing the projects.

 

Greater Evaluation leading to Stricter Accountability & Transparency:

Corporates are now undertaking greater evaluation and stricter accountability and transparency norms, and based on that public disclosure is done. Companies can do it only if there is quality implementation of the programme. CBM ensures systematic monitoring through project coordinators conduct periodic meetings while grassroots mobilizers facilitate the component of community participation, capacity building as per project deliverable. Our evaluation and audit mechanism ensure right usage of funds and ultimately contribute a huge social return on investments

 

Quality Reporting with Consumer-Facing Stories: 

A very important aspect of CSR is the reporting practices that companies adhere to inform their key internal and external stakeholders of social responsibility practices. In the recent past, several indicators such as the Global Reporting Initiatives guidelines and Sustainability Reporting have been developed. A well-drafted Sustainability report provides a balanced and reasonable representation of the sustainability performance of a reporting organization. The subject experts and professionals of CBM ensure the submission of quality project reports, which enable the company to further frame their sustainable reporting. Our creative team also translates corporate responsibility into customer-facing stories.

 

Partnership Modes with Corporates and Institutions:

Corporates/foundations have a strong will to dedicate their resources for a social cause, but sometimes find it difficult to reach the people in greatest need. CBM acts as a catalyst working towards sustainable development while helping companies to invest in social initiatives. Our partnership with many corporates has brought a sea of change in the lives of underprivileged people including people with disabilities. Below are the modes through which a donor can partner with us:

Employees will receive a payment summary at the end of the financial year along with a tax exemption certificate
