The CECP: The CEO Force for Good, in association with The Conference Board, found in their 2017 Giving in Numbers report that IHS Markit was among the top quartile (top 25 percent) of companies when measuring total direct donations and in-kind giving. As one of America's 50 most community-minded companies in the 2016 Civic 50, we actively support our communities through employee engagement in philanthropic and citizenship efforts. This includes efforts in EMEA, APAC and the Americas, supporting local efforts that advance education, health and wellness and environmental stewardship. IHS Markit colleagues contributed almost 52,000 volunteer hours and raised over $425,000 in 2018. In 2019, 181 shavees in more than 30 global offices raised an IHS Markit record of $436,936 for childhood cancer research through our long-term partnership with the St. Baldrick's Foundation.
