Cash Donations from Large Firms up Two Percent in 2015

Cash donations from large U.S. corporations to charitable causes increased two percent in 2015, driven largely by gifts from financial and pharmaceutical companies, a survey by the Chronicle of Philanthropy finds.

The 68 corporations surveyed by the Chronicle donated a total of $4.9 billion in 2015, with 16 of those companies contributing more than $100 million each. Pharmaceutical company Gilead Sciences topped the list with nearly $447 million in total giving, followed by Walmart ($301 million), Wells Fargo ($281 million), Goldman Sachs ($276 million), and ExxonMobil ($268 million). Pharmaceutical companies also topped the list of in-kind givers, with Pfizer providing $3.1 billion worth of its products, followed by Gilead Sciences ($1.9 billion) and Merck ($1.7 billion).

The survey also found that while the median share of pre-tax profits donated was 1 percent, a handful of companies did far more, with General Mills giving 7 percent, Chevron 5 percent, and Nationwide and Xerox each giving 4 percent. Financial institutions, which accounted for five of the top ten cash donors, all were parties to billion-plus dollar federal settlements for their role in the financial crisis, the Chronicle reports, and appear to be eager to use their charitable activities to improve their standing with the public.

"The financial crisis created a moment in time where people questioned the value of banks in our society," Brandee McHale, president of the Citi Foundation, told the Chronicle. "We’re working hard to not only communicate but to demonstrate proof points of how a strong financial system is a critical piece of a thriving economy and society."

Corporations Gained Advantage with Societal Engagement Efforts

A growing number of companies are actively changing the structure of their business to capitalize on the competitive advantage of societal engagement, an annual survey conducted by CECP and the Conference Board finds.

Based on a survey of 272 multi-billion-dollar corporations, the report, Giving in Numbers, found that the companies in the survey spent some $24.5 billion on corporate societal engagement, with 56 percent of survey respondents saying they reported environmental, social, and governance information to investors as an indicator of business strength. The report also found that employee participation in company volunteer efforts rose to 33 percent, up from 28 percent in 2013. According to the survey, companies increased their full-time corporate giving headcount by three percent between 2013 and 2015, even as total headcount fell.

The practice of evaluating the impact of corporate giving and volunteering efforts also has become more widespread, with 87 percent of companies reporting that they measured the social outcomes and/or impact of at least one grant in 2015, up from 79 percent in 2013. The survey also found that companies that were actively engaged in impact investing supported community-focused programs with giving of $25.7 million on average, while giving for such programs by companies not actively engaged in impact investing averaged $15 million.
