Economic theory. Demography
philanthropy as a controversial topic at the crossroads of business and society. The
strategic role of corporate
philanthropy has been emphasised by both academics and practitioners and is a topic of long-standing discussion as is the original concept of corporate
philanthropy. This article summarises the different definitions, approaches and categorisations that have been adopted by management scholars working in the field of corporate
philanthropy and published in the top academic journals. Four main lines of inquiry were distinguished within the literature: the evolution and essence of
philanthropy, theoretical foundations of
philanthropy, empirical foundations of
philanthropy and the measurement of the impact of
philanthropy. The results show that the concept of
philanthropy is still evolving and different approaches to define and theorise it can be found. The implications for further research are provided at the end of the article.
