Giving in Numbers 2017 Survey Now Open

By Alex Parkinson

We are pleased to announce that the Giving in Numbers 2017 survey, conducted by CECP in association with The Conference Board, is now open.  The annual survey is the industry-leading tool for corporate societal engagement professionals. The survey closes on March 31, 2017. To get started, please contact Alex Parkinson at Alex.Parkinson@conferenceboard.org.

This research, based on responses from 272 leading companies in 2016, including 62 of the top 100 companies in the Fortune 500, provides data and methods for corporations to assess the scope and scale of their societal investments. Data from the survey are the basis of the annual Giving in Numbers report.

We look forward to another successful survey year and thank you in advance for your participation.
