Social entrepreneurs can play a game-changing role in local and national development by introducing social innovation. Strongly committed and mission- driven, they employ entrepreneurial schemes to organize and manage resources through financially sound and economically sustainable entities in order to create social value. This study aimed to determine the levels of political commitment and sense of social responsibility among social entrepreneurs of small and medium-sized social enterprises in Davao City. Using the non-experimental descriptive correlation method to gather survey inputs from 47 respondents, the researchers found that the respondents exhibited high levels of political commitment and sense of social responsibility. Furthermore, a significant relationship existed between political commitment and sense of social responsibility. When analyzed according to sex, no significant difference was observed in the level of political commitment. However, a significant difference appeared when analyzed according to type of business venture. No significant difference was ever observed in the level of sense of social responsibility in both variables.
