How Passive Form Messages in Csr Advertisement Improve Consumer Reaction to the Campaign

We show that passive form messages in a CSR advertisement improve consumer reaction to the company when high company-cause congruence signals self-benefit. This happens because passive form CSR messages increase the company's perceived commitment to the campaign by shifting focus from the agent (company) to the acted-upon agent (CSR campaign).
