BENCHMARKING

Take your corporate giving to the next level

Why Measure?

There are many benefits for companies that collect data on their corporate social investment. With proper measurement tools, companies can present their historical contributions in preparation for budget discussions, contextualize corporate contributions within broader industry and peer group trends to identify alignment and difference, highlight opportunities for new corporate community investment programs or policies, or demonstrate the business value for increased levels or types of funding support.

CECP’s Giving in Numbers™ is the unrivaled leader in benchmarking on corporate social investments, in partnership with companies. It is the premier industry survey and research, providing standard-setting criteria in a go-to guide that has defined the field and advanced the movement. CECP has the largest and most historical data set on trends in the industry, shared by more than 617 multi-billion-dollar companies over nearly 21 years, representing more than $388 billion in corporate social investments over that time span.
