CECP’s annual research report, Giving in Numbers, presents a profile of corporate philanthropy in 2012 and shows how giving has evolved since before the global recession of 2008 and 2009. Giving in Numbers includes data from 240 of the largest companies in the world; 60 in the largest 100 of the Fortune 500. The report includes detailed information on matching-gifts programs, employee volunteerism, international giving, management and program costs, and many other aspects of corporate philanthropy. We’ll be digging into the trends and highlighting how and why companies are starting to look inward for how they can support nonprofits with the products, services and expertise at the core of their business. We’ll hear real-life examples from Discovery Communication’s Jennifer Cortner on their Creating Change program and hear how these programs impact the nonprofits they serve from VolunteerMatch’s own Shari Ilsen.
