There was a time when donations (reflective of social responsiblity) were made based on individual drivers arising either out of a catalyst or a periodical contribution to an institution or similar agency. Either way, the amounts were ad hoc and decisions somewhat random. Also, the value commitments were not significant from an organizational perspective. 

Today, with the introduction of mandatory CSR, the process is moving from a personal decision to a corporate decision. Hence the need to have an investment minded approach to contribution to social initiatives.
