The Global Guide to What Counts

At present, there is no international consensus based in tax law on what characteristics describe a charitable institution. Without a common thread among countries, companies—individually and collectively—are unable to consistently track and benchmark total global giving to these institutions around the world. The lack of a single, consistent, international definition prevents meaningful data-driven decision-making among corporate giving practitioners, executives, investors, and consumers alike.


CECP partnership is by invitation only and limited to multibillion-dollar for-profit companies. While CECP does not offer formal partnership (renewed on a yearly basis) for small to mid-size companies, or non-corporate institutions (e.g., academic, nonprofit, government), our latest research, event summaries, and benchmarking reports are all available, free of charge, on our website.
