  • The entity, with the collaboration of the Lealtad Foundation and the Spanish Association of Foundations, makes a free self-diagnosis system available for the associations of the third sector
  • The tool analyses over one hundred parameters grouped into seven areas offering a global score and a comprehensive improvement report
  • The dossier, with a maximum score of 10, analyses the following aspects: Transparency of information; Membership and donations; Content and social media; Mobility; SEO positioning; Digital Marketing, and Web Analytics

Bankia, in collaboration with the Lealtad Foundation and the Spanish Association of Foundations, launches Bankia Índicex Social, a self-diagnosis tool that allows associations and foundations to measure the level of communication and digital transformation of their organisation and analyse, in a simple way, the transparency of their information and their Internet presence.

Through the analysis of one hundred parameters grouped into seven areas, civil society organisations receive a complete free report of more than 50 pages instantly containing details and custom recommendations for improvement in the field of digital transformation and transparency.

With simple words, the report offers advice to achieve a better positioning on the Internet and thus achieve more effective communication methods to improve its fundraising strategy.

The tool, which gives a maximum score of 10, measures seven fundamental aspects for the analysis of the presence and communication level of the entity on the Internet: Transparency and information; Membership and donations; Content and social media; Mobility; SEO positioning; Digital marketing, and Web analytics.

Bankia is firmly committed to NGOs and we want to support them in their digital transformation process, since having a good Internet presence is fundamental to show their important daily work and to achieve, in this way, an increase in membership and donors.

David Menéndez
Bankia's Director of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)

"Bankia is firmly committed to NGOs and we want to support them in their digital transformation process, since having a good Internet presence is fundamental to show their important daily work and to achieve, in this way, an increase in membership and donors", highlighted Bankia’s Director of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), David Menéndez.

Menéndez stressed, in this regard, that Bankia wants to "be on the side of all the organisations that are concerned about the development of their immediate environment, serving vulnerable groups and having a positive impact on society."

For her part, the director of Institutional Relations of the Lealtad Foundation, María Eugenia Larrégola, has stressed that "the Internet is a key and essential element for NGOs to communicate with their target audiences." "For the information to be actually transparent, it is essential that the websites have certain, up-to-date content that is relevant to users because all this contributes to generating trust in the association and improving the loyalty of their members", she added.

‘Índicex Social Seal’

Bankia Índicex Social provides a complete dossier for NGOs to identify their strongest areas and their improvement areas in terms of digital transformation and thus show them whether their communication actions on the Internet are suited to the new digital world.

The report provided by Bankia to foundations and associations includes indicators that allow them to adapt to the digital world and keep in mind the requirements they have to meet so their messages are received by society in an effective manner.

Through the 'Índicex Social Seal', NGOs can show their score on their website and thus communicate their online presence.

In this line, the director of the Spanish Association of Foundations, Javier Nadal, said that "digital transformation is a requirement and an opportunity that we must utilise to improve transparency, management and service to the recipients of our projects and activities".

The launch of this tool supports the work of NGOs do and is part of Bankia's commitment to associations and foundations, while reinforcing the work of the Spanish Association of Foundations and the Lealtad Foundation in its commitment to transparency.

Bankia

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.

Lealtad Foundation

The Lealtad Foundation is a non-profit organisation whose mission is to promote the trust of society in NGOs to achieve an increase in donations, as well as any other type of collaboration. It was the first entity to develop a methodology for analysing transparency and good management practices of Spanish NGOs. A work that has been carried out since its creation in 2001, based on its values of independence, transparency, solidarity and accuracy. The Lealtad Foundation grants the Certified NGO Seal to the analysed organisations that comply with the nine Principles of Transparency and Good Practices.

Spanish Association of Foundations

The Spanish Association of Foundations is a private and independent association of national scope. It brings together 804 Spanish foundations of all sizes, purposes and fields of action. It is the most representative entity of the sector at a national level and the second most important in Europe. Its mission is to work for the benefit of the whole foundation industry in favour of its development and strengthening.

The course was conducted within the agreement signed by the Bankia Foundation for Dual Training with the Department of Education of the Generalitat.

The commercial manager of the regional division of Bankia Cataluña, Meritxell Sánchez Martí, underlined “the commitment of Dualiza Bankia with the promotion of education and with Catalonia where we have already promoted foreign trade courses, digital skills, tutor training workshops and where four projects of Catalan centres have been chosen in the Dualiza Aid Scheme”.

Representatives of Bankia and the City Council of Segovia visit the second renovated courtyard in the San José district

This project has been possible thanks to the collaboration between the financial entity and the City Council through the agreement signed last November.

  • Located on Paris Street and entitled 'Vida que te quiero verde', the project seeks to create a neighbourhood where the environment is the protagonist
  • The renovation work has been carried out by the Hilógicas Collective

Representatives of Bankia and the City of Segovia visited the second remodelled courtyard in the San José de Segovia district, located on Paris Street. With the title 'Vida que te quiero verde', the renovation is the work of the Segovia collective, Hilógicas.

This work was possible thanks to the collaboration between the bank and the City Council with an agreement signed last November. The objective of this agreement was to create a space where the environment plays a leading role, with specific areas for playing, meeting, walking and resting.

From the City Council, Mayor Clara Luquero and councillors from the two areas involved took part: Marifé Santiago, from the Department of Culture and Ángel Berbel, from the Department of Environment. Bankia’s Regional Corporate Manager in Castilla y León, Lola Peñas; the mayor of Segovia, Clara Luquero; and Bankia’s Area Manager for Segovia Centre-South, José Gabriel García Encinar.

This is the second project of this kind promoted by Bankia and the City Council, which also collaborated for the renovation of the Fernán González square in the San Millán district.

It is also the second artistic project carried out by the Hilógicas collective in the courtyards of Calle París de San José. In November 2017, they renovated the look of three other courtyards on this street with project 'Un patio, muchas vidas'.

‘Vida que te quiero verde’ project

The project 'Vida que te quiero verde' revolves around the five trees in the courtyard. A bench twists and turns like a snake between and around them, conceived as a place for sitting and resting, but also for playing.

The shape of the bench was inspired by a wader bird, the avocet, which does not live in Segovia, but insinuates the very life that green spaces offer (the lawn on which the structure sits). In the part closest to the street, is a circular shape that includes geometric shapes of the same colours - orange, green, grey and black - that are found upon entering the courtyard.

The materials used - natural grass, grass, granitic sand, paving stones and wood - have been chosen according to the design, a sinuous and suggestive shape that inspires movement, luminosity, rhythm and brightness to inspire different interpretations.

This project continues the same conceptual thread, in a general plan that seeks "to create a desirable, attractive, recurring place, that residents can enjoy looking at from above (from their homes), or use it to be with and coexist with the other citizens", according to the collective itself.

The process of transforming the San José courtyards on Paris street also seeks to confer upon them the status of a white space, without noise pollution from mobiles and other electronic devices.

  • The second edition of the Call for Proposals has allowed to increase the number of projects selected, the number of autonomous regions benefited, and the amount, which this year will amount to 407,000 euros

The second edition of the Dualiza Aid Scheme and FPempresa has selected 44 collaboration projects from among vocational training centres and companies, distributed over 15 autonomous regions.

The interest aroused, together with the quality of the projects, has led the participating entities to distribute 407,000 euros, exceeding the initially planned budget of 400,000 euros. This increase has allowed to increase the number of centres that will receive aid to a total of 44, in comparison to the 36 selected in the first edition. Moreover, the aid will be more spread out due to reaching a total of 15 autonomous regions, instead of just 13 previously.

The community with most selected projects was the Comunidad Valenciana, with a total of 11, followed by Andalucía, with five, and Cataluña and the País Vasco, both with four.

Once again, the evaluation committee has taken into account that the projects are innovative and have social relevance; they encourage co-participation among various centres; have social impact; diversify the participating agents; establish coordination and communication mechanisms; envisage durability to provide long-term results; are transferable, and facilitate communication of the achievements.

The head of projects of the Bankia Foundation for Dual Training, Juan Carlos Lauder, highlighted “the importance of this call for fostering collaboration between vocational training centres and companies, an essential collaboration to be able to meet the labour and training needs of tomorrow”.

Lauder expressed his satisfaction that the Call “becoming more and more known and that it has found a place among Vocational Training centres as a pillar on which to develop projects of such educational and social importance”.

For his part, the chairman of FPempresa, Luis García Domínguez, confirmed the great acceptance the Dualiza Aid Scheme has in the training centres and has insisted that “FPempresa works to create spaces and proposals that foster relationships among centres, companies and the Administration. By sharing successful projects and good practices, we will achieve quality Vocational Training aimed at the employability of students”.
