Ibercaja has held the third edition of its Solidarity Dinner, an event in which 905,000 euros of donations will be given to 16 projects of non-profit entities, within the framework of the “Your money with a heart” and “Solidarity impulse” initiatives.

Almost 700 people , from different leading companies and the main Aragonese business organizations, participated in the solidarity meeting in which the president of Ibercaja, Francisco Serrano , and the CEO of the Entity, Víctor Iglesias , participated in the Restaurant Aura of Zaragoza.

The general director of Fundación Ibercaja, José Luis Rodrigo , and the general directors of Ibercaja, Luis Miguel Carrasco and José Ignacio Oto , presented this Thursday to the media the operation of Ibercaja’s solidarity programs and this year’s aid resolution.

“Your money with heart” supports projects through the investment fund and pension plan “Ibercaja Sostenible y Solidario” . These products, in addition to investing sustainably, revert part of their commissions to social and environmental projects of non-profit entities. The participants, with their votes, actively collaborate in making this project possible.

“Solidarity Impulse” is an initiative aimed at Ibercaja staff with the aim of enhancing the Bank’s social commitment through the collaboration and direct participation of its workers. Through this program, employees present the social and environmental projects to which they are committed.

Both the investment fund and the retirement savings plan, in addition to being sustainable because they are managed incorporating ESG (environmental, social and good governance) criteria, are supportive since the management companies of both products annually donate a part of the management commission they receive for social and environmental projects. thus allowing its participants and Ibercaja to move towards a more cohesive and inclusive society.

These products are designed for people who, with their savings and investments, want to contribute to generating a positive impact on society through greater social and environmental returns and the support of initiatives and solidarity projects of the investment fund and the pension plan.

The funds raised at the Solidarity Dinner, from the donations of the almost 700 in-person attendees and the zero row tables acquired, have been allocated to the Picarral Foundation, which is focused on personal attention, training and career guidance so that people with mild intellectual disabilities or borderline intelligence can find work and lead a life as autonomous as possible. The Foundation has received a check for 13,464 euros that it will allocate to this work: 9,464 euros have been raised thanks to donations from those attending the Dinner and 4,000 euros come from the Investment Fund and the “Sustainable and Solidarity” Pension Plan.
