About Neighbourly

Neighbourly connects local community projects with companies that want to make a difference. It’s an online platform that allows causes of all types and sizes to publicise and gain community support, while businesses can easily find causes that matter to them, manage their contributions, generate and receive authentic content and measure the value of their participation – at both a local and a national level. By providing evidence that engaging in local activity is good for business, Neighbourly will increase corporate investment into communities.

It's critical that Neighbourly leads by example. As a Board we'd already committed to writing a Charter and to giving a percentage of profits back to community projects within our own site. We'll still do those things but becoming a Certified B Corporation is even more powerful because it's independent, it's stringent and it's a movement. There can be no doubting our ethics and ambition having joined such an important, forward-thinking community.

The Change We Seek®

At Neighbourly we believe we can significantly grow community investment all around the world. Every large business has under-performing advertising spend. By making community engagement easier and by providing better metrics, we use data to show that giving is more effective for brands than poor advertising. This will move new money into community projects - accelerating change and creating a fairer, more inclusive society for all.

What makes us a better company?
