A profile of corporate contributions by Hayden W Smith( Book )

3 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The extent and distribution of charitable contributions by corporations were studied. In addition to a history of giving from 1936 to 1981, information is presented on corporate contributions in 1977 in terms of the distribution of companies (1) by size of contributions, (2) by contributions as percentage of net income, (3) by industry, and (4) by size of company as measured by total assets. Findings include the following: total corporate charitable contributions, as reported for tax purposes, rose from nearly $800 million in 1970 to about $1.8 million in 1977, but the distribution of corporations in terms of amounts and percentages of giving did not change appreciably; more than 90 percent of corporations with assets over $1 billion reported contributions; more than 80 percent of companies with $25 million or more of assets reported contributions; and the largest donors accounted for half of all contributions but only 40 percent of corporate taxable income. Appended materials include: a discussion of the quality of Internal Revenue Service contributions data; a discussion of the measurement of corporate giving as a percentage of corporate profits; and an article on a similar 1970 study entitled, "Corporate Giving Measures" by Thomas Vasquez.

Corporate Support of Higher Education. Pressure for a Realistic Appraisal by Hayden W Smith( Book )

1 edition published in 1980 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The texts of three speeches on corporate giving to higher education are presented. In "The Potentials for Corporate Support of Higher Education--Realism Revisited," Hayden W. Smith outlines current corporate giving to education and trends in giving since 1950, a period during which changes in the law have encouraged the practice. These trends are compared to other sources of private financial support and the size of academic budgets. It is emphasized that a good case for corporate support cannot be made merely by the need and deserving character of the institution; each appeal for funding must show convincingly why it is in the interest of the prospective corporate donor to give the requested amount for the requested purpose. In "What Colleges and Universities Can Expect from Corporations," Doris J. O'Connor discusses what colleges and universities can expect of corporations: awareness of their needs, concern about their problems, and whatever action is within the corporations' means, to be of assistance. The reasons for Shell Foundation support are outlined (principally the need for competent manpower and for propagation of the profession of teaching), and the Foundation's main considerations in making donations are noted (the institution as a source of manpower, school quality, institutional control, and goegraphic location). Types of aid are suggested: ad hoc program support, structured programs that address the company's interests and/or needs, support of individuals' work, and joint action for public service. Hints are given for obtaining support. In "The Corporation Looks to the Campus," William A. Orme describes the General Electric Foundation's support of higher education, and explains that it is not entirely philanthropic but motivated by enlightened self-interest. These issues are considered: employee education, fund-raising expectations of institutions, alumni matching, resource allocation, minorities and women, lab equipment faculty shortages, college mortality, and preparing tomorrow's leaders.
