CAMPAIGN: 2019 Giving In Numbers

CONTENT: Press Release

NEW YORK, January 9, 2019 /3BL Media/CECP: The CEO Force for Good is celebrating the launch of the 14th annual Giving in Numbers Survey, the unrivaled leader in benchmarking on corporate social investments, in partnership with companies. The survey is open to companies with revenues of US $2 billion or more, including companies not yet affiliated with CECP. CECP is a coalition of 250 of the world’s largest companies that represent more than $6.6 trillion in revenues, $21.2 billion in social investment, 14 million employees, and $15 trillion in assets under management.

CECP has the largest and most robust data set on trends in the industry, shared by more than 500 multi-billion-dollar companies over nearly 15 years, representing more than $250 billion in corporate social investments over that time span. The analysis of the data, the Giving in Numbers report, is embraced by professionals across all sectors globally to understand how corporations invest in society, with topics ranging from cash and in-kind/product, employee volunteerism and giving, and impact measurement.

From quick questions, to presentations to company teams, boards, and CEOs, CECP is a trusted advisor to companies, analyzing Giving in Numbers data to provide customized insights to advance strategy and measure the business value. Last year, 252 global companies participated, including 68 of the top 100 companies in the Fortune 500, submitting data on their corporate giving and employee engagement programs.

“As the premier body of research in the corporate social investment field, CECP’s annual Giving in Numbers Survey provides standard-setting criteria that have defined the field and advanced the movement,” said Daryl Brewster, CEO, CECP. “And this year’s survey is the best yet, featuring a set of refreshed questions, including our cutting-edge Total Social Investment analysis, the next wave of benchmarking that seeks to holistically capture the depth of company investments in society.”

This year, CECP monitored trends related to non-cash social investments as an indicator of deeper integration of social value generation into business strategy, as well as tracking any changes in the proportion of matching employee giving within corporate social investments overall, noting that leading companies have continued to evolve their approach to human capital.

Since 2001, CECP has collected data on corporate social investments globally to provide professionals with the benchmarking and reporting tools necessary for making data-driven decisions about their company’s social strategy. Results of the survey will be available at the CECP Summit, May 21-22, 2019.

Note to Editors: CECP can coordinate interviews with Daryl Brewster, CEO, and André Solórzano, the report author and Manager, Data Insights, who are available for comment on the Giving in Numbers survey and trends. Please contact Jackie Albano, jalbano@cecp.co to arrange interviews.
