The State of Corporate Philanthropy

The last decade has seen tremendous growth in the field of corporate philanthropy. Although the percentage of reported corporate charitable funding has remained relatively stable, the actual amount of corporate assets that are going into nonprofit coffers through grants, loans, paid advertisements, business partnerships, donated goods and services, and other types of contributions has risen dramatically. Available as a Microsoft Word file.
