This report studies the ways that the private sector engages in social investment, specifically in Latin America. This study surveyed companies based in Latin America to determine where they have or where they wish to invest their resources for social causes. It was determined that companies largely align their social investments with their core business strategy, as well as basing this strategy on the likelihood of positive impact on communities. These investments are largely local, and companies focus on involving customers and employees. This report details the ways in which the private sector engages in these social investments, including which causes they support and why, and how they are looking to continue these investments in the future.
