The most important question to our organization is number 13. The question is whether the organization has partnerships with the local community groups. Community groups may provide unique and valuable information on the difficulties and possibilities confronting people in their area and assist local leaders in improving their capacity to interact and engage with a diverse variety of community members(Carroll & Brown, 2018). Nonprofits can benefit from solid community connections because they can lead to new financing options. Most of the time, community groups have the best understanding of the community’s concerns and the infrastructure to enable joint activities(Grayson & Hodges, 2017). The issue affects the organization’s effectiveness because collaboration with local community-based groups has increased the range and depth of neighbourhood citizens’ engagement in local decision-making.


If the issue of partnering with the local community groups is not addressed, it has a considerable negative impact on efficiency and returns on capital. When the issue is not taken seriously by the organizations, it can lead to a total collapse. Organizations that do not partner with the local communities may tarnish their reputations and image, thus leading to collapse in their activities because the community should be a significant stakeholder. When looked upon, it is not suitable for the organization. The legal implication of this issue is that it is a type of informal law that, notwithstanding customer expectations and internal rules, is seen as mandatory by most organizations. Because these programs assist in preventing climate change by decreasing carbon footprints, reforming labour rules and adopting fair trade, participating in voluntary contributions and volunteer work in the local society, and creating socially and ecologically conscientious investments.
