About the Giving in Numbers survey webcast

CECP and The Conference Board have updated and refined the Giving in Numbers survey for 2015. If your company has revenue in excess of $2 billion, we would be delighted to have you complete the survey. To help companies navigate the survey, CECP’s Carmen Perez and Jinny Jeong will join me to explain the changes and provide guidance to survey respondents on how to answer the survey. A better understanding of the survey will result in more accurate, comparable findings. Attendees will learn the benefits of participating in the research, and can use the opportunity to ask questions to the panel.
