It's an "impression management" strategy as well.

That is, vulture capitalists like the Waltons or the Koch Bros hope philanthropic gestures will blunt criticism of their malfeasance and wrongdoing in other arenas.

Right-wing brownie hounds are all too happy to point to such gestures in their efforts to give these schmucks a free pass.
