Contributions Council

The Contributions Council advances the practice of corporate philanthropy by underscoring its importance to corporations and society. In our candid and confidential meetings, we educate each other on the latest trends and identify key industry issues. We discuss:

  • New ethical governance issues and concerns for corporate grantmakers
  • The impact of philanthropy on migration and immigration
  • Employee engagement
  • Philanthropy for an aging society

This council includes representatives from some of the best-known and best-run companies in the United States and around the world. Council members also have the opportunity to visit the communities, campuses, and nonprofit organizations that benefit from their grant-making.

The power of peer learning

Enduring relationships with trusted peers are the core of the council experience. Enhanced by our global, enterprise-wide reach, these relationships span the world and extend the value of council membership. Confidential peer dialogue provides you with a broader perspective and shared experiences, as well as access to specific knowledge and best practices.
