Corporate Giving: The Power Of Putting Stakeholders In The Lead

Put your stakeholders in the lead of your corporate giving strategy. Download our new white paper to learn why companies need to be responsive to employees, customers, and the community with their philanthropy.



In the early days of corporate giving, a few checkbook philanthropists could sit down and decide how their company would use its profits to do good in the world. Particularly at large corporations, that type of top-down corporate giving was commonplace.

Today, employees, customers, business partners, and investors are demanding greater accountability and engagement in decision making, and companies are responding by putting stakeholders in the lead with their corporate philanthropy. The resulting innovations are benefiting both business and the community. To explore the evolving role of stakeholders in corporate giving, GlobalGiving conducted a survey in 2018 of 50 corporate social responsibility professionals. Our findings are included this white paper, “Corporate Giving: The Power Of Putting Stakeholders In The Lead.”

In 2019, the Business Roundtable, a powerful group of corporate CEOs, made news by signing a statement saying that businesses have a commitment to all stakeholders, not just shareholders. In 2020, the most successful companies will be responsive not just to employees and customers, but also to another of their most important stakeholders, the community.
