  • The bank is donating 85,000 euros to the Iluro Foundation to jointly promote initiatives run by associations that carry out social, environmental and entrepreneurship activities in the Maresme district
  • Through the Red Solidaria programme, bank employees have selected 25 projects in the four provinces of Catalonia to receive 125,000 euros of support, depending on the achievement of commercial objectives by the network of branches

This year Bankia is donating 220,000 euros to support a total of 39 social projects in Catalonia thanks to its partnership agreement with the Iluro Foundation, which focuses its activity in the district 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 network of branches.

Bankia’s social action strategies in the four provinces of Andalusia 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.

“In the complicated current situation, caused by Covid-19, Bankia is more committed than ever to those who, at local level, carry out specific, close and much-needed social projects that help to improve the day-to-day lives of people in situations of vulnerability living in Catalonia”, underlined Bankia’s corporate regional director for Catalonia, Miguel Capdevila.

During 2020, Bankia is providing the Iluro Foundation with 85,000 euros of support to jointly promote social, environmental and entrepreneurship programmes run by associations in the district of Maresme. This budget has increased by 42% compared to the previous year.

On the one hand, the agreement includes the implementation of the “Call for Proposals for Social Action 2020”, which has selected 12 projects run by associations and social entities in the district, which will benefit more than 800 people.

The fourth 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 Iluro Foundation will also promote a plan to support environmental programmes that contribute to improving the surroundings of the district. As a novelty this year, a call for environmental projects will be launched this 1 September.

Projects selected by employees

Furthermore, through the Red Solidaria programme, bank employees in Catalonia have selected a total of 25 projects in the provinces of Barcelona, Tarragona, Lleida and Girona to receive in excess of 125,000 euros of support, depending on the achievement of commercial objectives by the network of branches.

“Red Solidaria is a programme that showcases the pride of belonging to Bankia and due to which the bank’s professionals, thanks to their work, support the groups and associations of their area that they themselves have chosen”, pointed out Capdevila.


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 bank is focusing its social investment on these areas and shows its commitment to society by involving the entire organisation and its employees. The Responsible Management policy is a capillary, grassroots programme that connects the bank’s welfare work with its corporate objectives. This enables Bankia to prioritise five of the 17 SDGs: Climate action (SDG 13), Decent work and economic growth (SDG 8), Quality education (SDG 4), Sustainable cities and communities (SDG 11) and SDG 17, which encompasses them all, Revitalise the global partnership for sustainable development.
