Contributions to charitable organizations increased by 24 percent from 2002 to 2003 among the country's largest corporations and foundations, according to an annual survey by the Conference Board.

The board looked at companies that participated in the survey both in 2002 and 2003, finding that giving among companies and corporate foundations rose from approximately $3.13 billion in 2002 to $3.88 billion in 2003.

Among these companies, median U.S. contributions amounted to $7.4 million, compared to $6.6 million in 2002, an increase of 12.88 percent."
