  • The entities receiving the funding will run programmes aimed at improving the quality of life of people at risk of social exclusion, as well as boosting local development and employment

Bankia and Fundación Cajamurcia allocate 75,000 euros to support a total of 29 social projects in the Murcia Region, selected within the call 'Acción Social 2018' promoted by both entities.

The contributions will go towards projects that aim to improve the quality of life of people at risk of social exclusion due to poverty, disability, age, unemployment or any other reason, as well as programmes that promote local development and employment as a means of social integration.

In this call, which is part of the collaboration agreement signed by Bankia and Fundación Cajamurcia in the area of social action in the Region of Murcia, a total of 45 entities submitted their proposals, of which 29 were selected.

All recipients of this aid are private, non-profit organisations that originate from citizen initiative and have their headquarters or a permanent office in the Region. Such organisations must be at least two years old, and their purposes must be socially-oriented or be of general interest; as stated in the terms and conditions of the call.

The selected projects are focused on the creation of new jobs, with special attention to people who struggle to find employment, young people and the long-term unemployed; as well as careers advice, job training, support for families and attention to their basic needs.

Initiatives that are run in the area of social rehabilitation and reintegration in the fight against poverty and inequality have also be positively valued, as well as prevention, early care and therapy initiatives.

Similarly, priority has been given to care programmes for people with disabilities and situations of dependency, as well as to projects that promote autonomy and universal accessibility.

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.

Fundación Cajamurcia

Fundación Cajamurcia is deeply committed to the Murcia Region, where it plays an active role in initiatives aimed at fostering social and cultural development. Its two main objectives are to foster actions that are clearly beneficial to society, particularly those that assist vulnerable groups (elderly people and people with disabilities, children, low-income families, immigrants...) and which support initiatives that further social and economic development, primarily projects in the areas of art, culture, education and research, and recovery of historic and natural heritage.
