15. My Company does a lot of this stuff....
They view "Corporate Citizenship" as giving the schools a TON of money and being good Corporate Citizens. It's viewing the Corporation as a "citizen" of the country per se. As in, I as a person do my part but my company does its part as well.

Does that make sense.

I think the number is in the 15-20 million range that my company gives to local school systems each year; thus making them good "citizens" I guess. As opposed to a corporation taking all of their profits and doing nothing and being greedy.
