  • The initiative is aimed at non-profit organisations that work on behalf of the most vulnerable members of society in the Comunidad de Madrid and Castilla-La Mancha
  • 25 April is the deadline for submitting projects to the social aid call, jointly launched by both entities.

Bankia and Fundación Montemadrid have jointly launched the ‘7th Call for Social Action’, provided with 1 miilion euros for supporting social action projects in the Comunidad de Madrid and Castilla-La Mancha.

The call is aimed at promoting initiatives that facilitate access to employment, promote equal opportunities, promote autonomy and active ageing, foster social inclusion, develop research programmes, encourage volunteerism and improve the quality of life of its people.

The aid is aimed at non-profit organisations located in the Community of Madrid and Castille-La Mancha which work with the most vulnerable groups. The beneficiaries will be the elderly, children and young people at risk of exclusion, as well as people with disabilities or illnesses and dependent persons or those in situations of social difficulty.

Bankia’s Director of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), David Menéndez, highlighted the importance of Bankia’s collaboration with Fundación Montemadrid and its commitment to the organisations that best know and support the most vulnerable groups on a day-to-day basis from two regions that are very important to us, as are the Community of Madrid and Castille-La Mancha”.

For his part, the general director of Fundación Montemadrid, Cristóbal Sánchez, has stated that “this joint effort allows us, on the one hand, to reach a greater number of people who, given their situation, deserve and need the solidarity of all and, on the other, to support more organisations that put all their energy and resources into achieving a fairer and more egalitarian society”.

The organisations will be supported with a maximum of 25,000 euros per project, without exceeding 50% of the total cost of the same.

To take part in the ‘7th Call for Action’, organisations must register (if they have not done so in previous editions) and submit their project on the website www.convocatoriaaccionsocial.es. Those interested can check the terms and conditions of the call on the websites Bankia and Fundación Montemadrid.

The deadline for submission of projects is 25 April and the list of selected organisations will be published during the first half of November.

The previous editions benefited more than 567,000 people in vulnerable situations in the Community of Madrid and Castille-La Mancha through a total of 444 projects run by private non-profit organisations, which have received 6 million euros.

Bankia

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 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 Montemadrid

Fundación Montemadrid is a private non-profit organisation that has made a great effort when it comes to boosting and promoting social action, education, culture and environmental protection in our country. Its activity is aimed at improving the quality of life and inclusion of groups and individuals with social difficulties, while boosting the active participation of citizens through greater access to culture and education. The Foundation maintains and manages social and cultural centres such as La Casa Encendida and Casa San Cristóbal, schools, libraries, centres for older people, special job centres and various administration centres from which social institutions, among others, operate.
