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.
