The 2020 edition of Giving in Numbers is here! As always, this year’s report covers trends in corporate social investment and includes a brand-new section on corporate purpose.
Given the rapidly changing state of the world during 2020, CECP took steps to ensure that Giving in Numbers data was supported with real-time insights by increasing the frequency of CECP Pulse Surveys.

I might be the only ecologist on Wall Street, but I don’t mind. It’s exactly where I want to be: after a winding journey through field research, advocacy, and legal work, I believe changing the financial system may be the most effective solution to climate change.
According to US SIF: The Forum for Sustainable and Responsible Investing, Socially Responsible Investing (“SRI”) has reached the $12 trillion asset mark. Unfortunately, the vast majority — 97 percent, to be precise — comprises investments in the traditional capital markets in which decisions are made using Environmental, Social, or Governance (“ESG”) criteria. While I applaud people adding ESG screens to their portfolio, it is imperative that we find ways to support direct, community-level investments.
