Conducted by CECP, in association with The Conference Board, the 2016 Giving in Numbers survey collects data that helps companies make the business case for their investment in societal engagement. The survey is open online until to March 31, 2016 to companies with revenue of US $2 billion or more, including companies not yet affiliated with CECP or The Conference Board. Click here for more information on how to participate.

The Giving in Numbers Survey since 2001 has collected data on corporate societal engagement programs globally and now features more than $250 billion in corporate giving data . Now working together, this is the fifth year of the association between CECP and The Conference Board, and the list of engaged corporations continues to grow with companies of all types.

Last year, 271 companies, including 67 of the top 100 companies in the Fortune 500, submitted data on their programs. Data sourced from the world’s largest companies on a range of areas including cash and non-cash contributions, cause areas of allocation, and employee and stakeholder engagement, are used to develop Giving in Numbers, a seminal report published by CECP, in association with The Conference Board.
