  • The agreement includes the 'Call for Social Action 2019' to support projects of associations with social purposes, as well as a programme to lend spaces so that foundations can hold their activities and a support programme for the development of environmental projects.
  • Bankia thus maintains its commitment to the Canary Islands and channels, through the La Caja de Canarias Foundation, part of its social responsibility lines.

Bankia gives 220,000 euros to the La Caja de Canarias Foundation this year with the aim of supporting programmes by associations and foundations for social purposes in the Islands that will be managed jointly by both entities.

The collaboration agreement has been signed at the Regional Headquarters of Bankia in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria by Bankia’s Regional Director in the Canary Islands, Federico Navarro, and the president of the La Caja de Canarias Foundation, Blas Trujillo.

The agreement includes the implementation of the 'Call for Social Action 2019', which will contribute to the promotion of specific projects of foundations and associations to promote employment and local development, as well as improve the quality of life and the integration of certain groups at risk of social exclusion.

Among these groups are people in situations of unemployment, elderly and disabled people and other people at risk of social exclusion for any other reason.

Bankia’s Regional Corporate Director in the Canary Islands highlighted that "with the signing of this agreement, Bankia maintains its commitment to the Canary Islands and channels part of its social responsibility lines through the La Caja de Canarias Foundation".

"With this agreement, we continue with our objective of bringing our social action closer to launch local projects that improve the daily life of the citizens in the Islands", Navarro pointed out.

On the other hand, the collaboration agreement between Bankia and the La Caja de Canarias Foundation includes the transfer of spaces during this year to non-profit social associations in the Canary Islands with the aim of arranging cultural and/or artistic activities aimed at providing assistance.

It also includes another call for the development of environmental projects in the Islands.

Trujillo, meanwhile, insisted that "this agreement between the Foundation and Bankia is important because it means continuing the common effort for the sixth consecutive year to try to meet the needs of different groups in the Canarian society." "Today means a double success, because these actions are the raison d'etre of this Foundation and because we do it with Bankia," he said.
