CECP Releases New Data Report on Trends in Corporate Philanthropy
According to CECP Executive Director Charles Moore, “CECP’s 2009 Giving in Numbers report illustrates that despite adverse economic conditions, corporations continue to invest in sustainable change solutions. Commitment to measurement and sharing of best practices will be critical as the corporate sector continues to address societal problems in partnership with public and non-profit entities.”
Giving in Numbers is a free, annual public report on corporate giving trends. The 2008 data are based on CECP’s annual Corporate Giving Standard survey of philanthropic initiatives. The Corporate Giving Standard (CGS) is the industry’s top philanthropy measurement tool, containing over $60 billion in the form of cash, foundation cash, and non-cash contributions. The CGS offers participants unprecedented peer benchmarking and year-over-year trend reporting on corporate giving programs.
