An exploratory study of determinants of Philanthropy/Charity/Corporate Social Responsibility by SMEs and unlisted manufacturing firms in India

Kiran Mehta, Renuka Sharma.

Abstract
Nielsen and Thomsen (2009) recognized that CSR is more propelled by personal ethics of managers
of SMEs rather than a strategic emphasis of profitability and sustainability. The employers of these SMEs
repeatedly use the terms “Philanthropy” and “Charity” as a way to fulfill their social and moral responsibilities
towards society and environment. The unlisted firms are also adopting socially responsible practices for direct and
indirect benefits. The present study is intended to study the behavior of SMEs and unlisted firms in India as
responsible corporate citizens. An attempt has been made to identify the determinants of socially responsible
behavior by these organizations. For this, an extensive survey on 337 SMEs and unlisted manufacturing firms has
been completed. The results thus obtained are confirmed on a fresh sample of 376 units by using confirmatory
factor analyses have implications for various stakeholders.

Key words: Philanthropy, Corporate Social Responsibility, Charity, SMEs, Unlisted Firms, and India
