Corporate Philanthropy & CSR

Corporate philanthropy and CSR are closely related concepts in that philanthropy is a slice of the bigger CSR pie.  It is seen as an activity that can have a positive impact on the organisations brand image.

It’s important to underline that the pure act of donating is not enough. Big and small successful companies need to truly believe in the causes they are supporting. They must show interest and raise their voices. Moreover, stakeholders are interested to see how donations and grants integrated with their companies overall business model.

The Rotunda Foundation showcase the direct impact made to the Rotunda, the local community, companies employees and stakeholders, who can uniquely be shown that 100% of the direct donation has supported the hospital’s vital needs.

Benefits of Philanthropy

A company giving its time or money to charities and nonprofits not only help those they donate to and the community they serve, they also benefits through improved employee engagement.  Research has found that companies who encourage their employees to volunteer had a higher retention rate because employees who enjoyed their workplaces were less likely to leave. This directly affects the company’s bottom line because it will spend less on recruiting, and hiring new staff.

In summary, philanthropy nowadays is not pure charity anymore, it needs to showcase the company’s own identity and mission in order for it to be effective and praised
