  • A total of 15 social entities of Granada and Jaén may opt to use the facilities of CajaGranada Foundation during 2019 to disseminate their activities
  • The projects and applications can be presented from tomorrow Friday, 1 February, until 28 February
  • The collaboration between both entities allows to extend the concept of aid for NGOs and local associations

Bankia and CajaGranada Foundation open the call ‘We help those who help. Assignment of Spaces’ consisting in the assignment of some of its most significant spaces in Granada, Motril and Jaén, so that NGOs and non-profit associations in the provinces of Granada and Jaén can use them throughout the year for their activities, events and presentations of programmes with a cultural, social or welfare purpose.

The call, a pioneering initiative by Bankia and CajaGranada Foundation that complements the solidarity programme ‘We help those who help’, includes a total of 15 grants that can be requested until next 28 February.

CajaGranada Foundation makes available to NGOs and associations the following spaces: the Exhibition Hall, the Theater, and the Workshops within the Cultural Centre CajaGranada Memoria de Andalucía. In addition, the Exhibition Hall and the Assembly Hall of the Cultural Centre of Motril are available, as is the Exhibition Hall of Jaén.

The corporate director of Bankia’s Andalusia Region, Joaquín Holgado, stressed that “this agreement represents taking a step further in the good relationship of Bankia with CajaGranada Foundation and with Andalusian associations in favor of the support and dissemination of the very important projects that they develop to improve the lives of the Andalusian population”.

For her part, the chairperson of CajaGranada Foundation, María Elena Martín-Vivaldi, emphasised that “putting our facilities at the service of NGOs and non-profit associations is to further increase our social commitment and solidarity with Granada and Jaén, while attempting to facilitate the work to those people who do so much to alleviate the most debilitating situations of exclusion and inequality”.

The assignments are made for non-profit purposes and CajaGranada Foundation and Bankia will assume the cost of opening the space, as well as the necessary staff, an aspect to be previously agreed upon.

The objective of this call is to provide a space of reference, audiovisual media and logistical support to NGOs and non-profit associations that, at certain times, need to have access to facilities such as those belonging to the CajaGranada Foundation to organise certain activities, hold unique events or present their programmes and projects.

Bankia and CajaGranada Foundation is proud to continue strengthening its collaboration with the social and welfare network of Granada and Jaén that do so much to alleviate situations of inequality and exclusion within our society.


Bankia consolidates and reinforces its commitment to society through five priority lines of social action: employment, training, housing, local and rural development and disability. 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 Corporate Social Responsibility policy is all-encompassing and approachable, as it links the social actions of the bank with its business in the areas in which the professionals themselves find socio-economic problems and vulnerable groups.

CajaGranada Foundation

CajaGranada Foundation has a history of more than 125 years focusing on its strong social vocation in Granada, Jaén, Almería and the rest of Andalusia. In 2017 it developed 2,672 activities, an average of seven activities per day, which reached more than 494,000 beneficiaries. The Foundation’s presence in social networks has increased since the launch of the free financial education app that has exceeded 53,000 subscribers which allows for the activity and level of knowledge to reach a significant percentage of Andalusian citizens.
