Assess Your Giving
Know where you stand.
Corporate giving professionals evaluate their giving program through the CGS online system as well as CECP’s customized benchmarking services. They can also leverage the findings featured in the annual Giving in Numbers report to assess their corporate giving programs. By comparing their own performance with the broader trends, corporate giving professionals can continue to make the case for increased levels and quality of contributions.
To get started, giving professionals can refer to CECP’s “Tools for Using this Report” for assistance in creating a high level snapshot of philanthropic contributions. Companies that participate in CECP’s annual Corporate Giving Standard survey have free access to an online report pre-populated with this data (the report is titled “My Company – Numbers Snapshot” in the CGS system). Those not participating can use the template below as a starting point. Reference the Tools document for assistance in identifying internal giving trends and suggestions for benchmarking against the findings in Giving in Numbers.
