COVID-19 Impact on CSR: Survey Results 

Dana Frazeur, ACCP

Sr. Marketing Manager

Over 68% report that they have funded new nonprofits to address urgent needs.

In May, ACCP teamed up with Rocket Social Impact to survey corporate social responsibility (CSR) professionals on the impact COVID-19 has had on their grant making and social impact efforts.

Following a review of the results at the ACCP Virtual Conference in June, ACCP and Rocket Social Impact again paired up to create a timely infographic to break down the research findings. This infographic is available on the ACCP website, and we hope you find it informative and valuable.

In our research, we discovered that more than 68% of corporations are funding new nonprofits to address urgent needs during the COVID-19 crisis. So as CSR departments are compelled to branch out into focus areas that might be unfamiliar to them, what can they do to make? Get smart on the issues by learning about community needs, engage with issue experts and their industry peers to become more knowledgeable and strategic.

This is just one insight we offer from our research findings. For a look at more of the data and our thoughts on how you can act on it, download our infographic.
