January 2013 Best Practice Network Webinar, presented by VolunteerMatch
Corporate social responsibility is ever growing and evolving. As we kick off 2013, now is the time to assess the current landscape of corporate giving and volunteering trends, and determine how our programs will respond to changing marketplace demands.
This session offers a deep-dive into two studies from the Committee Encouraging Corporate Philanthropy (CECP) and VolunteerMatch, which will offer perspective and advice for your 2013 program planning.
This session will feature findings from the 2012 edition of CECP’s Giving in Numbers report, tracking trends in corporate philanthropy. The analysis looked at data from 214 companies, including 62 of the top 100 companies in the Fortune 500, presenting a profile of the state of corporate philanthropy, and pinpointing how corporate giving is evolving and becoming more focused.
This session marks the release of VolunteerMatch’s first-ever survey of highly effective employee volunteer programs (EVPs) in January 2013. The survey analyzed 44 EVPs among VolunteerMatch’s corporate partners, which are independently recognized as high performing programs. The results provide benchmark data for the inputs required to run an effective program at your company.
