This summer, the chair of the Business Roundtable – an association of many of America’s top business CEOs – announced that “business can do more to help the average American” and that they were seeking a new purpose for corporations that includes value for ALL stakeholders. At the same time, on a global scale, the United Nations was reviewing progress on its Sustainable Development Goal 16 and asking “how is everyone – including the private sector – promoting progress on access to justice?” Clearly, there is a movement to align business with greater social responsibility, but how does that affect you, the small- to mid-sized nonprofit that mostly relies on local business relationships for your funding? This workshop will help you capitalize on the ways in which business is advancing access to justice as described in NLADA’s policy brief, Access to Justice Is Good for Business, and help you identify corporate and other business funding prospects in your locale, develop strategies and effective pitches using the new language of American business, and refresh and maximize your organization’s approach to corporate support.
