Hello, I’m Emily Polk, and these are your CSR Minute headlines for Wednesday, June 9th:

The Boston Beer Company has been given the Founder’s Award for 2010 by the Committee Encouraging Corporate Philanthropy for its Samuel Adams Brewing the American Dream Program. CECP, founded by actor Paul Newman and other business leaders, honored the company’s partnership with ACCION USA, a nonprofit micro-lending organization, in their joint effort to help entrepreneurs start and grow their own businesses in the food and beverage industry. The American Dream program provides capital funds and senior management from Boston Beer, while ACCION USA provides financial education and manages the loan program. 

Fenton Communications has published the 2010 Fenton Forecast on Leadership and Effectiveness Among Nonprofits. The report collects comments from 1,000 Americans who donated $20 or more to a nonprofit in the past year, and contains detailed information on how the public values nonprofits. Among the highlights: 80 percent rate the performance of nonprofits as either “good” or “excellent.” 64 percent report that their donations in 2010 will be the same as last year or less. Those surveyed ranked the American Diabetes Foundation, Special Olympics, and the American Red Cross as the most effective nonprofits.
