BankiaCorporate sponsorship

Start of main content

Besides its strictly social activities, Bankia is also involved in sponsoring other activities that help improve its social environment, on the level of culture, sport and business.

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. In its second year of life, the orchestra played three series of concerts in Toledo, Valladolid, Salamanca, Zaragoza, Barcelona, Alicante and Valencia, with attendance of more than 5,000 people.

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. In 2016 this programme published its third call for grants and launched the first edition of the Valencian Community’s Competition for Orchestras. Bankia also sponsored the Bankia-Las Provincias Musical Campus, aimed at training a large band of young artists.

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 Club de Baloncesto the Gran Canaria Basketball Club (Las Palmas), the Puente Romanillos Athletics Club (Ávila) and the Sala Futsal Football Club (Segovia) and the Sala Futsal Football Club Sala Haría (Lanzarote). In 2016 the bank reached an agreement with the Valencia Basket basketball club to inculcate the values of a culture of effort among young people through various social programmes. Also in 2016, for the third season, Bankia sponsored Valencian pilota, the first sport to be declared an Intangible Heritage Asset by the Valencian government, practised throughout the three provinces of the Valencian Community.
