TOEFL Essay Topic 56 - A company is going to give some money either to support the arts or to protect the environment. Which do you think the company should choose? Use specific reasons and examples to support your answer.
Put money on arts
There should be many discussions on the topic either some company put their money on the project supporting the arts or the one protecting the environment. Some will be positive to put money on the environmental project. However, I will recommend the company the project on the arts. I like to use the following reasons to describe why I believe so.
First of all, it is the matter of relation between the cost and benefit. The environmental problem is a huge issue, which is hard for just one firm to solve. Therefore the money put by the company may end up with nothing. It means that the many will be wasted since the amount of the money needed in order to solve the environmental problem is too expensive. On the other hand, the art project might benefit both artists and the firm with less money. The artists, especially the young ones who are not known or famous yet, need money for their activities. They may quit because of the lack of money even though they have talent. Even small amount of money can help them out, and it will be fame of the company if the artists who are supported by the company become very famous and popular. So to put money on art is much more cost effective than to put money on the environmental problem.
In addition to this, there are so many other companies supporting the protecting the environment already. And there are companies which are focusing their main business on an environmental problem. They do not treat the environmental problem as the social responsibility programs which are done from the disposable money of the firm. This fact means that the environmental project as advertisement or excuse for social responsibility will not work. In other words, the company, which do the environmental problem using the disposable money and not set as main business, is not seen as the company which is focusing on the environmental problem. Therefore the company may not benefit from the environmental projects very much, on the aspect of their capacity building or image strategy.
From the reasons; cost and benefit, public view towards the environmental problem, I mentioned above, I will strongly like to insist the company choose the option on the art project.
