Funding activities or Investment Funds
Explanation:
Without seeing the context of this web section, it´s difficult to konw which, but suggest two options:

- If they are showing thier "corporate responsibility" here, with social or community projects they have helped/invested in, then I would go with "funding activities". There are some links below that may help.

- If the section shows inestments they have made where the stand to make a profit, then I would use "Investment funds".

Notes to answerer
Asker: I hadn't got that far when I posted the question, but now I can say that they help with/invest in other projects, so it could be 'funding activities'. Thanks Kim!
