dc.description.abstract Presents a few aspects of the concept of the concept of corporate social responsibility. The important relationship between business and society is examined. The question of whether business should be socially responsible or not is raised, and many arguments for and against this issue are presented. The various means of involvement which could reflect the social responsibilities of business are discussed. The objectives and aims of the Urban Foundation are also described. The views of certain South Africans, mostly businessmen, on the topic of corporate social responsibility are reviewed. While it is generally agreed amongst businessmen that companies do have a social responsibility, there is no common agreement as to the extent and degree that business should involve itself. An examination is made of the legal rights of the directors to apply company funds for social purposes. Current tax legislation is examined to determine the tax situation of donors who make donations to the Urban Foundation or to other social welfare organizations. Suggestions are made as to possible ways that such contributions could be claimed as a tax deduction for the donor. The effects of the three Draft Bills on the control of social welfare organisations are described, with reference to the Urban Foundation. An examination of the provisions of the National Welfare Bill, Fund-Raising Bill and Social Workers and Associated Professions Bill reveals that the work done by social welfare organisations will be hampered. en
