Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) has been an important global issue all over theworld. Proponents of CSR claim that it has lots of benefits for the company such as goodreputation; on the other hand opponents claim that CSR can not protect a firm from financial harmin times of crisis. The objective of this paper is to conceptually examine the CSR, benefits ofimplementing CSR, and CSR activities in the time of financial crisis. In addition, a research wasconducted to explore the impact of CSR on company reputation in Turkey by comparing therelationship between our CSR and reputation measures before and after the financial crisis. Theevidence gathered shows that there is a positive and significant relationship between these twovariables in both before financial crisis era and financial crisis era. However, the correlationbetween these two variables has not increased significantly between the two periods investigated.
