— This paper reports on the results of a study exploring the distributions of hotels’ CSR funds in Bali. Unclear or no guidance on how to spend CSR funds may result in gaps between excessively supported objects and insufficiently supported ones. The importance of this study lays on the identification of items on which funds were distributed. The findings help guide which objects require more CSR support, thus, reduce the gaps. Data were collected from 62 hotels accross regions in Bali. Analysis was conducted on the financial reports of the participating hotels. The results showed that the distributions of hotel CSR funds fell into seven categories which have not addressed the needs for preserving tourist objects. In fact, the tourist objects were one of the most appealing tourist attractions. As such, the study further explored which tourist objects in Bali required priority help from hotels’ CSR in order to sustain. Results identified five groups of tourist objects. Implications and directions for future research are discussed.
