We explore both the successes and challenges, whilst also providing some top tips for delivering effective collaborations.

Corporate Foundations in a Changing World
 New Research Report

A new research report released by Corporate Citizenship reveals that change is afoot for corporate foundations. The traditional philanthropic cheque writing model is no longer adequate and many corporate foundations are now upping their game and embracing some truly innovative strategies in order to drive change.
Nearly three quarters (73%) of corporate foundations surveyed by Corporate Citizenship said that their giving strategy is linked to its parent company’s business focus – this has increased from 58% who said so in 2013. The research report also identifies six key characteristics that game-changing corporate foundations are exploring in order to innovate for impact.

Join Amanda Jordan OBE, Co-founder of Corporate Citizenship and Chair of the Association of Charitable Foundations (ACF) and Monique Villa, CEO of Thomson Reuters Foundation as they explore the role of corporate foundations in a changing world.
