CECP’s Global Giving Around the World released: The report focuses on giving guidelines from 17 countries that have the highest concentrations of Fortune Global 500 firms. In total, 60 multinational companies within the top 200 of Forbes Global 2000 were analyzed in the report. Giving, as defined by the report, was broken down in three ways: direct cash, foundation cash, and non-cash. By this definition, more companies decreased contributions than increased over the last year, but the median amount of giving remained relatively stable. The report also tried to capture where current trends would carry corporate giving in the future.
