Giving Beyond Borders:

A Study of Global Giving by U.S. Corporations

On October 9, 2013, Global Impact released the results of their research study, “Giving Beyond Borders: A Study of Global Giving by U.S. Corporations.” The study, researched and written by the Indiana University Lilly Family School of Philanthropy, explores the scope and depth of international giving by U.S. corporations and examines what makes corporate-nonprofit partnerships successful.

Key findings from the study include

  • Eighty-six percent of companies that gave internationally said they plan to increase or maintain the size of their foreign giving budget in their next fiscal year
  • Needs in local communities and the company’s financial performance in that country are the two major determining factors that propel U.S. corporations to make social investments abroad
  • The main attribute companies look for when selecting a nonprofit partner is a demonstrated record of producing effective and efficient results
