Earlier this year, in honor of International Corporate Philanthropy Day, 55 CEOs from some of the world's largest companies convened for the Committee Encouraging Corporate Philanthropy's fourth annual Board of Boards CEO Conference to discuss this year's theme, "Global Leaders: Confronting a Crucial Decision."

Today leading companies and organizations around the world celebrate International Corporate Philanthropy Day, a day designated to showcase strategic corporate philanthropy initiatives and encourage further cross-sector partnerships in support of social and environmental causes. Building upon the tremendous success of a national celebration of corporate giving in prior years, the Committee Encouraging Corporate Philanthropy (CECP) is proud to launch a global effort in 2009 to engage more business leaders in the day’s activities.
