Business goals and social commitment

Shaping organisational capabilities - Colombia’s Fundación Social, 1984-2011

José Camilo Dávila, Carlos Dávila L. de Guevara, Lina Aceneth Grisales Rincón y David Schnarch González
Administración

Corporations, business groups and other business organizations are increasingly concerned about social challenges that directly impact the future of capitalism. Colombia's Fundación Social (FS)−a century-old Latin American business group − has from its start operated under two different but closely intertwined rationales: as a market, profit-seeking player; and as a civil society organization practicing solidarity. Social aims are at the core of FS’ mission, and business firms are instrumental. Remarkably, despite decades of growth as a ranking business group, FS’ underlying objective remained grounded in concern for the poor: ʻʻTo fight the structural causes of poverty.’’
