TLDEF Featured in Gill Foundation/Weber Shandwick Resource Guide

We're delighted to be featured in the Gill Foundation and Weber Shandwick's Business of Change:  A Resource Guide for Corporate-Nonprofit Collaboration.  The guide is meant to be a starting point for enhancing collaborative dialogue between nonprofits and corporations.  As the guide points out, corporate philanthropy is rapidly changing.  It requires corporations and nonprofits to engage in open and honest dialogue to shape partnerships where a company's philanthropy is reflective of the core values that guide its business; where the nonprofit is viewed as an equal partner and remains true to its mission; where expectations and deliverables are negotiated upfront; where the company includes previously untapped non-cash resources to maximize its investment; and where the nonprofit helps the company deliver on its corporate goals.

The Gill Foundation is one of the nation’s largest funders of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender civil rights work.  Weber Shandwick is one of the world's leading global public relations firms with offices in major media, business and government capitals around the world.

We're pleased and proud that the Gill Foundation and Weber Shandwick featured TLDEF's Name Change Project as one of a handful of case studies that embody the spirit of the Business of Change.  And we’re grateful to our partners in the Name Change Project , without whom we would be unable to provide this essential service to community members.
