What the Giving USA 2011 Report Means for Corporate Strategy

5 Ideas for Companies to Do Better Corporate Giving
Summary: 

This week, the Giving USA Foundation released it’s latest report Giving USA 2011: The Annual Report on Philanthropy for the Year 2010. So what are the implications of the new giving data for corporate giving?  And what should companies do about it?  In this post we look at a few of the top takeways and 5 ideas on how companies can do corporate giving better.

Corporate giving makes up 5% of total charitable contributions, despite tons of data that suggests consumers and employees expect more. So with all due respect to fans of Milton Friedman’s view, it seems perfectly clear to us: companies can (and should) do more corporate giving.  And even if they don’t increase their budgets, they should at least do corporate giving better.  New approaches will enable corporations to deliver greater social impacts (read: more dollars donated to more charities) and business benefits (read: tangible effect on the bottom line that creates business case for sustainable and increased investment).  In other words, more and better.  And that’s corporate giving that will help companies that get it to truly "do well by doing good."

How To Take Cause Marketing from "Feel Good" to "Real Good"

A New Approach to Do More Good with Cause Marketing
Summary: 

Doing well by doing good: it’s not just a corporate catch phrase or nice-to-do anymore, it’s a must do for a growing number of businesses. A growing number of consumers expect businesses to not only “do good” but to provide opportunities for them to give back to causes that resonate with them.  And to be more open, innovative and collaborative about how they do it.  Research shows that cause is a purchase trigger and that consumers want more cause marketing offers.  Yet many current cause marketing campaigns are hindered by me-too cause marketing.  So how can cause marketing be more compelling to consumers (not to mention, deliver more impact for charities and businesses alike?) Here's a new approach to cause marketing to Do More Good.

What Cause Marketing Can Learn From Workplace Giving

More Choices and Matching = More Consumers Who Care About Your Cause Marketing Campaign
Summary: 

Here’s a thought for cause marketers who worry about consumer engagement and wonder how to get more impact from their cause marketing campaigns.  Take a page from the playbook of successful employee giving programs: open up choice and pony up corporate matching.
