Ending corporate philanthropy programs can be done for justifiable reasons, if the shareholders feel their money is being shammed or unreasonably given away. Corporations have problems with funding friendly/related "charities," then getting the tax deduction. The CEO doesn't have to pay a dime. The shareholders do.

So, I don't know why the programs were ended, but it's very likely not because Jobs was or was not a mean guy who disliked charity.
