This paper aims to identify the determinants financial and non financial of corporate social responsibility (CSR) in Jordan .The annual reports determine a sample of 60 industrial companies listed on the Amman Stock Exchange for a period from 2006 to 2010 in Jordan were used as a basis for the study. The results of the analysis imply that companies that are expected to be large in size firm, age of firm, maintaining growth and are highly leveraged are more likely to voluntary disclose social responsibility information.
