THE ANALYSIS OF GIVING BY FTSE 100 COMPANIES

We are delighted to share with you our new Corporate Giving by the FTSE 100 report. Corporate giving describes the donations made by corporations and private companies towards charitable causes. This can be in the form of a cash or in-kind gift to a charity or community organisation.

Our findings reveal the recent charitable giving trends amongst FTSE 100 companies and highlight the most generous industry. In addition, for the first time, we reveal the British public’s perception of corporate giving by FTSE 100 companies and compare it to the reality.

OUR RECOMMENDATIONS

There is a need to recognise the importance of corporate giving

  • The Government should look into reinstating mandatory reporting on companies’ charitable contributions.
  • With the continuing fall in donations, could the FTSE 100 consider its collective or industry specific contribution to maintain giving levels, especially in industries that traditionally tend to give less?
  • By supporting more open, accessible reporting on corporate giving, businesses will allow for better engagement from the public.
  • Businesses increasing commitment to the UN Global Goals (UN Sustainable Development Goals) can only be achieved if they are prepared to commit financial as well as physical and intellectual assets to tackle the key goals. Philanthropy provides a vital currency for developing and delivering programmes which work towards the goals.
