ANAHEIM, Calif., Oct. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/-- Business4Better (B4B) today announces its nonprofit partners, B Lab, Points of Light and Stanford Social Innovations Review. Each partner has an established track record and earned a leadership role in promoting the B4B mission of enabling successful corporate and nonprofit partnerships that have a positive societal impact on communities. These three organizations join OneOC, previously announced as a B4B nonprofit partner.
B4B, produced by UBM plc, is a non-commercial community partnership movement and two-day conference and expo that brings together nonprofits and business leaders to form meaningful relationships and strengthen their corporate social responsibility programs.

The nonprofit partners will sit on the B4B Advisory Committee, providing valuable guidance and expertise to ensure that B4B provides both businesses and nonprofit organizations the tools, resources and education fundamental to achieving the common goal of driving more active and integrated community involvement. The B4B partners will also participate in the selection of the more than 200 exhibiting nonprofits.
"We are extremely grateful for the support of all of our respected nonprofit partners and for their leadership role in redefining charitable giving and taking business-community engagement to even higher levels of effectiveness," said Joshua Dome, Project Leader for Business4Better.
