Growing Good surveyed Central Texas companies about all the ways they are helping to address our community’s greatest needs through philanthropy – and the results are in! RecognizeGood has been proud to be a founding driver of this effort to measure corporate philanthropy in Central Texas, and we’re especially proud that we didn’t let a global pandemic slow down our enthusiasm to continue this project.
As you might expect, COVID-19 has affected corporate giving this year; but monetary donations, employee volunteerism, and in-kind donations continued to flow in Central Texas. These contributions are the lifeblood for many nonprofits that depend on this support to provide critical services in the community.
The survey also found that …
- Supporting the community/altruism is still the most important driver behind an organization’s charitable giving.
- Volunteer time has gone down, likely due to COVID-19 limiting the opportunities for in-person events and engagement.
- The majority of companies primarily support local nonprofits.
