Corporate philanthropy refers to the investments and activities a company voluntarily undertakes to responsibly manage and account for its impact on society. It includes cash contributions, donations of products and services, volunteerism, and other business transactions to advance a cause, issue, or the work of a nonprofit organization. Corporate foundations and corporate giving programs traditionally play a major role in these areas.” Source: Council on Foundations
