Here's the full conference call transcript – look what they said about donations and the Google foundation – it's not as straightforward as it seems:

From above link (George Reyes, Google Chief Financial Officer):

"As we discussed on our last call during the 4th quarter, we contribute $90 million to the Google Foundation. This was a non-recourse, non-refundable donation and was recorded as an expense in Q4. We do not expect to make further donations to the foundation for the foreseeable future. We do however expect to make equity and other investments in for-profit enterprises that aim to alleviate poverty, improve the environment and achieve other socially or economically progressive objectives. We expect these investments to be made primarily in cash and to be valued at approximately $175 million over the next 3 years."

These links are a commentary from Richard Holway, director of UK research group Ovum. He says, it's not Googles fault that the shares dropped, the fault lies at the analysts, which "arket analysts still do not know how to value the company and Google is not providing the guidance to help them"
