32% of companies demonstrate a real commitment to disabled people in their social reports, compared to only 20% of reports last year.

The Percent Club

The Percent Club is a voluntary benchmark, measuring the contributions made by companies through cash donations, staff time, gifts in kind and management time, shown as a percentage of pre-tax profits.

It recognises and celebrates corporate giving, raising awareness by reporting publicly and encouraging companies to compare themselves against 'best in class'.

With more companies than ever appreciating the need to quantify their total contributions, the PerCent Club is able to produce meaningful analyses of the full extent of corporate contributions to the community. Contributions in excess of 1% of pre-tax profits are recognised with the award of a certificate and the use of the PerCent Club logo. Setting a standard encourages more companies to join and therefore increases the amount of investment in the community. By adding your company name to the Index you stimulate other companies to take up the challenge of supporting the communities in the location of where they operate.

The index is now closed.
The information will be published in the ‘Giving List’, a supplement to the Guardian newspaper on Monday 6th November.

This year's participates will be invited to the 'Celebrating Success', drinks reception, in London on the 29th November.
