The CECP Giving in Numbers: 2014 Edition looked at what’s happened in corporate philanthropy and employee engagement programs since the end of the Great Recession in 2009. The report, created in association with The Conference Board, analyzed trends and giving behaviors (from 2010 through 2013) for 261 of the world’s leading companies.

Key finding: 66% of companies increased giving as a percentage of revenue, demonstrating that engagement is widely considered sound business strategy.

Ten valuable stats from the report to see how your company measures up:

    • Health & Social Services @ 27%
    • Community & Economic Development @ 14%
  5. Corporate giving to Community and Economic Development initiatives grew the most of any cause area (by 34%)
  6. A majority of companies (76%) measured social outcomes and impacts in 2013, showing corporate funders want to know the value created by giving
  7. While 79% of companies operate a corporate foundation, there’s a shift afoot, and recent cash contribution growth have come predominantly from Corporate Community Affairs budgets
  8. From 2012 t0 2013, in kind gifts (product donations and pro bono services) drove the largest increases (10%+) in total giving
  9. The median total giving per employee for all companies was $644
  10. Fortune 100 companies are starting to better align their giving focus with their business strategy and transitioning away from partnership that don’t match up
