  • The bank is contributing 60,000 euros to the Iluro Foundation to jointly promote initiatives run by associations that carry out social, environmental and entrepreneurship activities in the Maresme county
  • With the Red Solidaria programme, bank employees have selected 23 specific projects in the four provinces of Cataluña to receive up to 170,000 euros of support, depending on the achievement of commercial objectives by the network of branches

This year Bankia is contributing 230,000 euros to support a total of 35 charity projects in Cataluña thanks to its partnership agreement with the Fundación Iluro, which focuses its activity in the county of Maresme. It is also participating in the Red Solidaria programme, through which bank employees support initiatives run by social entities by achieving the commercial objectives of the branch network.

Bankia’s social action strategies in the four provinces focus on job creation for young people and over-45s, women, immigrants, people who are disabled and in danger of social exclusion, as well as on rural and local development and protecting the environment.

“Bankia is committed to organisations that run specific, local and social projects that are necessary to improve the daily lives of people who live in Cataluña”, underlined Miguel Capdevila, Bankia's corporate director for the territory of Cataluña.

During 2019, Bankia is providing the Fundación Iluro with 60,000 euros of support to jointly promote social, environmental and entrepreneurship programmes run by associations in the county of Maresme.

On the one hand, the agreement includes the implementation of the “Call for Proposals for Social Actions 2019”, which has selected 11 projects run by associations and social entities in the county, which will benefit almost 1,500 people.

The third consecutive year of this call for proposals is focused on promoting employment, local development and projects with a social impact in Maresme that contribute to improving the quality of life of people who are unemployed, disabled or in danger of social exclusion.

Bankia and the Fundación Iluro will also promote a plan to support environmental programmes that contribute to improving the surroundings of the county.

Projects selected by employees

Furthermore, with the Red Solidaria programme, bank employees in Cataluña have selected a total of 23 projects in the provinces of Barcelona, Tarragona, Lleida and Girona to receive up to 170,000 euros of support, depending on the achievement of commercial objectives by the network of branches.

“Red Solidaria is one of our flagships. The pride of belonging to the bank becomes more evident through this program, as the professionals support the groups and associations from their county that they select themselves”, says Capdevila.


Bankia consolidates and reinforces its commitment to society through five priority social action strategies: 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.
