  • The 17th 'Coopera ONG' competition supports initiatives for social inclusion in the Valencia Region and international cooperation in developing countries
  • A total of 34 of the projects supported by the call for proposals are from associations in the province of Valencia, seven in Alicante and five in Castellón

Bankia and the Fundación Bancaja have carried out their annual 'Coopera ONG' call for proposals, granting 400,000 euros to 46 non-profit associations in the Valencia Region that carry out projects in the fields of social exclusion and international cooperation.

The '17th Bancaja Foundation-Bankia Coopera NGO Call for Proposals' will support initiatives that utilise citizen participation and work towards the eradication of poverty and social exclusion.

The call focuses on groups that are extremely vulnerable in the Region of Valencia (long-term unemployed, families without resources and children, the homeless and immigrants, people with addictions and incarcerated and ex-prison population), as well as population in developing countries.

In the area of social exclusion in the Region, the call for proposals has supported 33 projects with a total amount of 290,000 euros. These programs focus on care, advice and support, rehabilitation and social reintegration, basic food and housing aids and training and employment guidance.

Initiatives in the field of international cooperation have received up to 110,000 euros to support 13 projects.

These initiatives are aimed at supporting primary health care, basic social infrastructure and support for formal and non-formal education in countries such as Peru, Chad, India, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Chad, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Togo, Honduras, Mali, India and the Palestinian territories.

The meeting was attended by non-profit associations from across the Valencia Region. In the province of Valencia, 34 projects have been supported, 7 in Alicante and 5 in Castellón


Bankia consolidates and reinforces its commitment to society through five priority lines of social action: employment and training, housing, local and rural development, disability and the environment. The financial institution focuses its social investment on these areas and maintains its commitment to society through the involvement of its entire structure and professionals. The Responsible Management policy is all-encompassing and approachable, as it links the social actions of the bank with its goals. Thus, Bankia makes a priority contribution to nine of the 17 SDGs, including decent work and economic growth; industry, innovation and infrastructure; action for climate, and affordable, clean energy.

Fundación Bancaja

Fundación Bancaja develops, in addition to the ‘Convocatoria Coopera ONG’ and the ‘Convocatoria Capaces’, social action activities that bring culture closer to vulnerable groups such as art workshops for the elderly, disabled and at risk of social exclusion or awareness exhibitions carried out by these groups such as the ones carried out during Bancaja Foundation’s D-Capacidad Week.
