The 2015 Giving in Numbers survey is entering its final phase, and CECP and The Conference Board are eager for companies with revenue in excess of $2 billion to take part. The survey will close on Tuesday, March 31 – don’t miss out on your chance to be a part of this important benchmark, which can help your company become a more effective funder. Click here to find out how to begin your survey submission.
Last year’s survey found that since 2010, companies that increased giving by more than 10 percent also increased median revenues by 11 percent. All other companies saw median revenues decline by 3 percent. We also witnessed a move to fewer—but more valuable—corporate-nonprofit partnerships that allow companies to deepen their social impact, while conducting more sophisticated evaluations of their funding’s effectiveness.
These findings are just the tip of the iceberg. With greater survey participation, we can provide more rigorous, more meaningful analysis that will improve individual companies’ funding while advancing the philanthropy industry more broadly. Ultimately, that means more responsible companies with deeper community impact.
