Are you measuring your corporate giving?

Giving West Are you measuring your corporate giving? Now in its fourth year, the WA Corporate Giving Index provides an opportunity to showcase Western Australian corporate giving statistics and programs, together with good case studies. A copy of last year’s report is available here

 

WA Corporate Giving Index -  Profiling corporate giving programs in Western Australia

Since early 2012, Giving West, in collaboration with LBG Australia & New Zealand (LBG), have developed and encouraged use of the WA Corporate Giving Index.
The WA Corporate Giving Index (Index) is based on a simplified version of the LBG methodology capturing cash, time and in-kind as a percentage of the total community contribution; as well as pre-tax profit contribution percentage.
“By showcasing WA corporate giving statistics and programs, we hope to encourage greater discussion and growth in corporate community investment and its measurement. Companies are in a position to develop a stronger corporate giving culture; leading to better and more sustainable impacts in the WA community” - Kevin MacDonald, Director Giving West.
