Please submit a 450 to 550-word essay on the questions prompted below You are the CEO of a medium-sized business that employs a total of 300 people. The business is a single-site, industrial factory and is based in a small city with a total population of 250,000. A substantial portion of the city – around 40% – is considered by most people to be a disadvantaged area, with average annual per capita income below the federal poverty level. In a typical year, your company budgets $100,000 for charitable contributions, and ordinarily divides that money between local charities whose mission is to alleviate hunger, poverty, homelessness, and similar afflictions. This year, however, your Board of Directors has become very interested in corporate social responsibility (“CSR”) and has asked you to re-allocate the budget for charitable contributions to a single area of CSR. They have left it up to you, though, to decide what that area of CSR should be, as long as you commit the entire $100,000 to one aspect of CSR (because they’re convinced that such a concentration will have maximum impact). Here are the questions you should address in your essay: 1. What would you do with the $100,000? 2. Why, in particular, would you do that? 3. What would you say to the one dissenting member of the company’s Board who believes that the community and the company would be better served by having the $100,000 go to a variety of charities than to your selected CSR endeavor? (And by the way, if you like you can tell this dissenting Director that you agree with her, but if you do, explain why.)
