Press Release – Most Firms Support just a Handful of big National Charities, finds Survey from The Good Exchange

The Good Exchange has released the results of new research into the key drivers and challenges involved in charitable giving within UK organisations. Conducted by Censuswide Surveys, the research polled 201 people with management responsibility for Corporate Social Responsibility or Charitable Fundraising for their employer or their business.

More than three quarters (77%) of respondents agreed that many more local charities and good causes are losing or seeing cuts in funding from central and local government.  Yet the majority (58%), reported that between just one and five charities/good causes had benefited from their CSR initiatives in the last 12 months.

What’s more, most of this funding was donated to national charities (42%), compared with just 20% being allocated to those operating at a local level.
