Corporate Philanthropy: Emerging Strategies for Lasting Impact

Corporate philanthropy is in transition. External trends and heightened stakeholder expectations have placed new pressures on the corporate sector.

This report, based on extensive interviews with corporate philanthropy executives, explores how corporate foundations are navigating these complexities. It includes seven strategies corporate foundations are pursuing to have more meaningful social impact while also driving long-term business value. These strategies show how many corporate foundations are rising to meet the public’s growing expectations while contributing to the long-term sustainability of their companies and also having lasting positive impact.

But there are also challenges, and the report concludes with a discussion of four key areas of ongoing consideration for corporate philanthropy leaders. These are finding the right talent, communicating effectively with the for-profit C-suite, determining where to deploy resources, and demonstrating real impact.
