Goldman Sachs Among Top Corporate Donors in the US
The Chronicle of Philanthropy, a magazine and news source covering the nonprofit world, recently published a study of corporate donors, tracking giving at 68 of the largest firms in the US in 2015. Goldman Sachs was ranked #11, having donated more than $276 million.
To develop the survey, the publication looked at data from the country’s 150 largest public companies listed as part of the Fortune 500 in 2014 and 2015, and reviewed public financial documents filed and available reports of corporate charitable giving.
The data included information on a company’s pre-tax income, total cash giving, donated products, and the areas of emphasis for grant making. Giving figures include both domestic and international philanthropy.
