On Friday, February 7, members from CECP joined me in The Conference Board webcast studio to discuss the 2014 Giving in Numbers survey on 2013 contributions. View the full webcast for free on demand via The Conference Board website.
The webcast highlights updates to this year's Giving in Numbers survey, changes that will allow CECP and The Conference Board to provide our members with the most useful information and data available on corporate philanthropy. In the highlight below, CECP's Executive Director, Margaret Coady, gives background on the survey and annual report, noting that Giving in Numbers was developed in response to company demands for benchmarking information on contributions. The report's author, Michael Stroik, and Carmen Perez, CECP's Manager of Measurements and Standards, also participated in the webcast.
This year's Giving in Numbers survey is now open for submissions. If your company has revenue in excess of $2 billion, we encourage you to participate. Your participation will help drive important continuous research, best practices and benchmarking. You'll also benefit from being listed as a survey participant—many companies refer to their response as evidence of corporate social responsibility disclosure. The closing date for the survey is Tuesday April 1, 2014.
