Giving in Numbers Survey 2018

Survey Closes: Friday March 30, 2018

The 2018 Giving in Numbers survey, conducted by CECP in association with The Conference Board, is now open for submissions. This is the seventh year that CECP and The Conference Board will partner on the project, and we are pleased with the many benefits that “one survey and one report” brings to the field.

The unparalleled data repository that the Giving in Numbers survey creates is a key tool in helping companies make the case to strengthen their giving.

Participating in the survey
If your company participated in the survey last year, a representative from your organization has already received communications from CECP regarding the 2018 survey on 2017 contributions.

If your company has not previously participated in either the CECP survey and/or the previous annual survey from The Conference Board, we encourage you to take part this year. Below are next steps for how to get started. Companies should have received their deadline from CECP. The survey closes on March 30, 2018.

  • Contact CECP. The survey will be conducted by CECP through its highly secure, easy-to-use Corporate Giving Standard online system. If your company is new to the CECP survey, ask the survey lead representing your company to call or email Jinny Jeong  (+1 212 825, to request a username/password and for instructions on how to use the system. Please visit for more information.
  • Begin gathering your data. While your survey lead will enter the data online, he/she can get in touch with CECP to receive a PDF of the survey as well as specific valuation guidance for each survey question. It’s important that you understand “what’s in and what’s out” with regard to the numbers your company reports—contact Jinny Jeong for assistance in interpreting the guidance for your company.
