Google has a philantropic organization, but this is not necessarily "not" making profit. Interesting (cannot be classified "philantropic" because of the definition), but still a good start.
The Google org helps start ups with specific "friendly" goals ( giving it seed money of about $1 billion and a mandate to tackle poverty, disease and global warming. )
Clearly shows that people nowadays consider the only reason for existence for a company should be to make money.
Hopefully this initiative will develop some companies that have "meaning".
When going to the google.org website, notice how "simple" the proposals are that Google has invested in. When you think about it, it's nothing too fancy. Just a small initiative that can already make small changes to the community without costing a lot of money. That, I guess, is the key for this kind of work. Create opportunity and capability, not waste buckets of money.
