    RESUMEN El objetivo de este trabajo es comparar el volumen de recursos destinado a obra social por las Cajas de Ahorros de Castilla y León y el resto de cajas españolas durante el período 2000-2005. Tras aplicar la prueba no paramétrica de la U de Mann-Whitney, los resultados obtenidos indican un mayor compromiso social por parte de las entidades castellano y leonesas. Específicamente, éstas han desviado una mayor cantidad de fondos a favor de las áreas de cultura y patrimonio, aunque su dotación asistencial ha sido inferior que en las cajas nacionales restantes. Respecto al área de educación, no existen diferencias estadísticamente significativas entre las cantidades invertidas por ambos grupos de cajas. ABSTRACT This paper aims to compare the amount that both Castilla y Leon savings banks and the rest of Spanish saving banks invested in social activities during the period 2000-2005. After applying the U Mann-Whitney test, results seem to indicate that Castilla y Leon savings banks invested significantly more in these types of activities than the rest of the saving banks. Specifically, Castilla y Leon savings banks dedicated more resources to cultural programs and monuments, while the rest of the Spanish saving banks invested more in social programs. With regard to education area, there are no statistical differences between both sub samples of saving banks.
