More Companies Looking To Support Charities According To C&E Research
12th November 2021
Research conducted by the business consultancy C&E Advisory for its annual Corporate-NGO Partnerships Barometer report, which assesses the state of partnerships between companies and charities and is published today, shows that cross-sector partnerships are likely to become more important for companies and charities over the next three years.
The research, which is in its 12th year, shows that 80 per cent of corporates and 88 per cent of NGOs polled said they expected to increase or significantly increase their investment in cross-sector partnering in the medium term.
The figures, which are based on a confidential survey of 130 companies and NGOs, and were supplemented by roundtable discussions with practitioners from both sectors, show a 15 percentage point increase in the proportion of companies that thought they would increase investment in partnerships compared with last year.
The proportion of NGOs that said the same was also up – by 12 percentage points year on year.
The research found that 84 per cent of companies said partnering would be more important or much more important to the corporate or NGO agenda over the next three years, with almost all NGOs polled saying the same.
Eight out of 10 corporates said the Covid-19 pandemic had increased their emphasis on partnering, according to the report, which says this “illustrates the value of cross-sector partnerships and their role in organisational responses to the pandemic”.
