U.S. Corporations are not required to disclose their charitable contributions.
BusinessWeek has done an annual survey since 2003 (around late November/early December) listing the largest 30 or so corporate contributors (cash and in-kind gifts). The information is based on about 200 returned questionnaires that BW sends to S&P 500 companies. This issue of BW also ranks the largest 50 individual charitable contributors. To find this ranking go to Business Source Ultimate:
- Click on the Advanced tab.
- In the first box type in Business Week.
- In "Select a Field" choose Publication Name.
- Enter givers in the second search box.
- In "Select a Field" choose Title.
The Foundation Center has the following pages:
- Catalog of Non-Profit Literature
- Corporate Giving Online which offers access to facts about corporate donors and their grants. This is not a free service.
- Where can I find information on corporate giving?
Also try free downloadable research reports from The Committee Encouraging Corporate Philanthropy - CECP.
