Integrating Philanthropy and Corporate Social Responsibility
Last Update: Thu, December 11, 2008
There is increased evidence that corporate social responsibility (CSR) has gained credibility in the U.S. private sector as not only necessary to uphold a company’s contract with society, but the right business move. Growing expectations from the public and from a new generation of workers fosters greater corporate commitment to be responsible in all facets of a business’s operations—and not solely through traditional philanthropy. The relationship between CSR and philanthropy continues to blur as companies that historically supported communities through financial contributions are integrating CSR principles into their philanthropy practices. This session will engage a panel of corporate executives to examine how they interpret philanthropy and integrate it into their overall corporate social responsibility activities.
