Bankia offers corporate sponsorship to help the most disadvantaged groups and to help combat unemployment and the consequences of the crisis.
The bank provides a series of corporate sponsorships to help these groups, which include the following:
Bankia Symphony Orchestra (OSB)
The goals of this new project launched in 2015 are to discover new musical talent, recognise dedication and hard work, offer continuous training, and help the most talented young instrumentalists who have completed their formal training to find employment. Bankia launched the OSB as a professional music group to promote youth employment through its programme of activities, as well as its artistic and social goals thanks to the outstanding talent of its members, bringing the universal language of music to the whole of Spanish society. In 2015, two series of concerts were held in Valencia, Peñíscola, Alicante, Ávila and Madrid.
Bankia Escolta València
Bankia Escolta Valencia is a program to promote musical education and combat early school leaving through the use of traditional music bands. It is primarily implemented by awarding grants to music school students in the Region of Valencia. In 2015, a total of 1,289 people received a total of €531,900 in grants. A concert paying tribute to Valencian musicians was also given as part of this program.
Grass Roots Sport
Bankia provides sports sponsorship that has nothing to do with supporting premier teams in mainstream sports. Instead, these initiatives are designed to promote sports training and practice among children. More than 1,000 boys and girls benefit from this sponsorship through the Gran Canaria Basketball Club (Las Palmas), the Puente Romanillos Athletics Club (Ávila) and the Sala Futsal Football Club (Segovia).
Andalusian Prizes of the Future
Training grants are awarded to young people in Andalusia that excel in science, sport, social action, business and culture. These grants are organised in collaboration with Grupo Joly.
Ahora + que Nunca
This is a campaign promoted by the Red Cross in collaboration with the ‘Diario de Ávila’ newspaper. The initiative collects toys during the Christmas period to give out during the Epiphany celebrations in January. The ambassador for the campaign is the young tennis star Paula Arias. The campaign took place for the third time in 2015.
Young Talent Awards
This initiative has also been running for three years. It is carried out in collaboration with the ‘Levante’ newspaper and recognises young people in the Valencia Region that excel in science, sports, social action, business and culture.
Venero Claro Summer Camps
An agreement was reached with Fundación Caja de Avila to provide grants to more than 400 boys and girls that had demonstrated special effort at school, so that they could attend these summer camps in Avila..
Ages of Man
This was the tenth time that Bankia has sponsored this exhibition, reiterating its commitment to promoting culture and preserving historical heritage. The exhibition went on display in four churches in Ávila and Alba de Tormes during 2015. Some 402,352 people took the opportunity to visit it over nearly eight months. It was the most visited and participated cultural event of the year in Castilla y León.
