Why Investing in Communities Is Good for Business [INFOGRAPHIC]
Did you know that half of world’s largest companies offered pro bono services to their communities in 2013? This is an increase from only 34% back in 2010. In fact, 2013 set a record for corporate giving reaching over $25.01 billion. At the inaugural Giving in Numbers Brief, CECP released a report that shows investing in communities can be a good business idea with more than half of companies that increased giving by greater than 10% since 2010 also growing in revenue. Today 79% of major companies now run a corporate foundation promoting things like education, health, economic development, disaster relief, civic affairs, arts and culture among others.
