Publication date: 
September, 2004

The Stewardship Principles for Corporate Grantmakers provide a clear statement of commitment to excellence and accountability as companies strive to be responsible stewards of their philanthropic resources.  These voluntary principles—crafted by grantmakers from across the country—were formally adopted by the Council on Foundations' Committee on Corporate Grantmaking in September 2004.  Use the Stewardship Principles to guide and strengthen your management, governance, and grantmaking decisions.
