Abstract: Building on theories of institutions, stakeholders, and information economics, we argue that due to differences in stakeholder perception and information availability, the relationship between corporate philanthropy (CP) and corporate financial performance (CFP) varies across different institutions (US vs. China). Moreover, the moderating effects of stakeholder perception (as indicated by sin stocks) and information availability (as indicated by advertising intensity) on the CP-CFP relationship are also expected to differ in different institutions. Comparing and contrasting two samples of US and Chinese firms, we find support for these arguments.
