Report on the State of Corporate Community Investment

Published: December 2008

BCLC, with the assistance of a grant from the U.S. Department of Commerce Economic Development Administration, has begun a process to map how and why companies invest in communities across the United States.  Over the past year, BCLC has conducted this research on two fronts: (1) by convening community-level, information-sharing, and partnership-building forums in eight regions across the country and (2) by partnering with the Center on Philanthropy at Indiana University to survey officials in companies of all sizes to analyze how they engage in their local communities.
