Social responsibility is seen in the form of financial funds, in-kind donations, volunteer employees coupled with their ongoing research, manufacturing features and developments to enhance safety and security in products and services.

Philanthropy has always been a hallmark of General Motors. Corporate response to charities and disaster victims, globally providing financially and in the person of company volunteers on every level. In word and action this corporation keeps alive the belief:GM is a Corporation, which responds to social responsibility.

Indian Oil, India's largest commercial company, listed on the Global 500 listing provides scholarship's for students of merit from all over India. The academic year 2006-07 provided 450 scholarship under their Indian Oil Scholarship Fund. Application submissions are requested on September 1 each and every year.

The company is considered a people centric company and is well known within India as a company caring for the people.

Proctor and Gamble states their commitment to Social Responsibility through provision of family friendly products and services. Proctor and Gamble is committed to social responsibility on local, regional and global levels. Providing for the economic and social well-being of their employees, shareholders and local communities where they are located. Where there is need PG is present.

The company strives to develop products, which are environmentally safe and materially safe. Quality of life improvements in the present and the future is a goal on paper and in the actions of the PG corporation, its shareholders and employees.

These three companies are not alone in their practice of social responsibility. Were it not for International, regional and local companies with top level officials as caring people, many organizations would be fundless. Many college students would be without the means for a college education.
