While giving declined overall in 2009, according to the recent Giving USA Foundation report, corporate giving increased 5.5%. Although the report couldn't account for all the increase, they did note that many corporations increased their in-kind donations.
In-kind donations simply mean that these businesses provide goods or services rather than donating cash. Either way, in the midst of a gloomy economy, businesses across the board stepped up their generosity. This may be a good indicator of the increased generous spirit of our corporate leaders.
Hebrews 13:16 teaches, "Do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased."
Kudos to our corporate leaders who stepped up to help others at a time when many of them felt they needed help themselves. God appreciates your sacrifices.
