McCarthy, Kirstin; Contardo, Jeanne; Eckert, Leila Morsy
International Journal of Educational Advancement, v9 n4 p251-265 Apr 2010
Corporate philanthropies can provide much-needed support to K-12 and postsecondary education efforts. This article analyzes whether select multi-billion dollar corporate philanthropies continue such support and adhere to best-funding practices during an economic downtown. Drawing on interview and document review data, the authors examine the giving practices of four corporate philanthropies and offer recommendations for grant seekers who seek to partner with corporate philanthropies.
