Businesses are increasingly creating a culture of corporate philanthropic engagement, moving beyond just grant checks to more strategic and effective giving. Today, many companies manage highly visible, well-structured programs that span geographic borders and align corporate giving with core business capabilities. The 21st century generation of corporate philanthropy is transforming the arena once again, repositioning it as a comprehensive portfolio of strategic, long-term, value-based programs.
The Center for Corporate Citizenship’s 2014 State of Corporate Citizenship survey of corporate executives found that more than 90 percent of respondents said corporate giving will stay the same or increase in the next three years, and of those about half said they will increase giving. According to the Committee Encouraging Corporate Philanthropy’s Giving in Numbers: 2012 Edition report, the median total giving of companies surveyed came in at $21.2 million.
