Charity corporate partnerships

Partnerships between companies and charities are becoming longer and worth more money to charities, according to the Corporate NGO Partnerships Barometer, a new report from the consultancy C&E Advisory based on a survey of 130 corporates and NGOs involved in partnerships.

The report states there has been a 12 percentage point increase over the past year in the proportion of corporate partnerships that are worth more than £10million, to 22 percent of charity respondents.

The report states that 95 percent of non government organisations (NGOs) selected "access to funds" as a reason for corporate partnerships while "reputation and credibility" was chosen by 92 percent of corporate respondents. "Long-term stability and impact" was chosen by 73 percent of corporate respondents, up from 60 percent last year, and there was a 15 percentage point increase in respondents from NGOs that selected this answer, to 71 percent.

89 percent of respondents said they thought corporate partnerships would become more important over the next three years, and 11 percent said they thought their importance would remain about the same.
