POINTS OF LIGHT LAUNCHES THE CIVIC 50 10TH ANNUAL SURVEY TO RECOGNIZE NATION’S TOP CORPORATE CITIZENS FOR 2022
Points of Light launched The Civic 50 annual survey on Dec. 3, 2021 and will host a webinar on Friday, Dec. 10, at 1 p.m. ET, for interested companies. The survey and additional information can be accessed on the applicant information page, including key dates, FAQ, eligibility requirements and a list of survey questions.
Marking the 10th anniversary year, The Civic 50 recognizes the 50 most community-minded companies in the nation as determined by an annual survey administered by True Impact. Since it was launched in 2012, the program has served as a roadmap for good corporate citizenship, and showcases how committed companies are moving social impact, civic engagement and community to the center of their business.
The Civic 50 honorees are public and private companies with U.S. operations and revenues of at least $1 billion, and are selected based on four dimensions of their U.S. community engagement program:
- Investment: How the company strategically invests its resources in community engagement and social impact, including employee time and skills, cash, in-kind giving and public leadership.
- Integration: How the company integrates its community engagement and social impact programs throughout its business functions and interests (i.e., “does well by doing good”).
- Institutionalization: How the company institutionalizes its community engagement and social impact programs through organizational policies, systems, and incentives.
- Impact: How the company measures the social and business impact outcomes of its community engagement and social impact programs.
In 2021, Points of Light also introduced new questions in The Civic 50 survey to better understand companies’ progress on commitments to racial equity and their communities.
The Civic 50 survey is administered by True Impact, a company specializing in helping organizations maximize and measure their social and business value. The survey instrument consists of quantitative and multiple-choice questions that inform The Civic 50 scoring process. For more information, please visit: www.pointsoflight.org/the-civic-50.
