CSR in Argentina has gradually evolved through the years, influenced by the country's cultural, historical and religious traditions. Its origins date back to the period of the Spanish viceroyalty, when the Catholic Church helped the poor through the Christian concept of charity. When Argentina became an independent state in 1816, the governing class took over this role, mostly through philanthropic activities.

During the mid 20th century, Peron's welfare state was marked by the concept of social justice, and in the 1980s civil society organisations played a stronger role in addressing society's needs through solidarity. In the 1990s, the concept of CSR was introduced in the media and some corporate circles (Milberg et al. 2003).
