This paper examines the strategic use of corporate philanthropy to modify images of corporate social responsibility following negative media exposure. Based on an analysis of the philanthropic allocations made by 163 corporate foundations between 1988 and 1993, the authors found that total annual philanthropy and allocations to educational philanthropy tend to increase following negative media exposure of the company. The results suggest that companies may use corporate philanthropy as a strategic tool to remedy negative portrayals of their social responsibility in the media.Corporate Reputation Review (2000) 3, 124–136; doi:10.1057/palgrave.crr.1540107
