BUSINESS GOALS AND SOCIAL COMMITMENT. SHAPING ORGANIZATIONAL CAPABILITIES–COLOMBIA’S FUNDACIÓN SOCIAL, 1984–2011

Corporations, business groups and other business organizations are increasingly concerned about social challenges that directly impact the future of capitalism. Colombia’s Fundación Social (FS)—a century-old Latin American business group—has operated from its begginings under two different but closely interrelated guidelines: as a market, profit-seeking player; and as a civil society organization practicing solidarity. Social aims are at the core of FS’ mission, and business firms are instrumental. Remarkably, despite decades of growth as a ranking business group, FS’ underlying objective remains grounded in concern for the poor: ʻʻTo fight the structural causes of poverty.’’
