This chapter studies the relationship between corporate social responsibility (CSR) motivations and CSR actions in 25 selected teaching cases, especially in the light of the distinction between family and non-family enterprises. A literature-based research framework is developed to classify the research findings and support a direct and easier identification of the resulting patterns emerging from our study. A cross-case analysis allows us to point out not only the evidence of the behavioural practices adopted by firms, but also of the causal link between the CSR motivations and actions, identifying four main emerging patterns in the behaviour of firms investing in CSR.
