    There is that scattereth, and yet increaseth; and there is that withholdeth more than is meet, but it tendeth to poverty – Proverbs 11:24.

    Truly, given the fact that companies in this part of this world generate their own electricity and other amenities and still pay tax, a lot of them think there is no need to engage in Corporate Social Responsibility any more.

    Think about CSR as a medium of advertising of advertising your product. If you provide pipe borne water to a community, chances are that the community will never forget it and that will make them patronize your business.

    By law, at least 10% of your profit is an allowable tax deduction if you spend it on CSR. If businesses can learn from The Redeemed Christian Church of God (especially CAMP), they will be sure to progress. There is no community they spread to that is not impacted. Infact, communities around that area look forward to being part of the camp because there is the guarantee of electricity, road developments and other forms of exposure little wonder people flock to the church.

    Advanced countries keep getting blessed inspite of their mess because they give to other countries – maybe we should tag that as “Corporate World Responsibility”.

    The bottom line is you can’t outgive God no matter how much you give and as a business especially in Nigeria, where everything we do and get is really by the grace of God, engage in CSR and see the mountain of prayers that will be heaped upon your business – You can never miss.
