Measuring Corporate Community Involvement: A Research Report

Managers of contributions and community relations programs face pressures to prove how they add value, and this pressure has caused some to explore new performance measurements. The most sophisticated efforts combine evaluation and benchmarking to develop integrated programs that promote the company’s image and business goals.
