Queen Letizia of Spain presided over the closing ceremony of the annual call for “Banco Santander Social Projects”, called “Euros from your payroll” at the Queen Sofía National Art Center Museum in Madrid. The event was an initiative of Santander to promote projects that improve society.
The “Euros from your Payroll” program allows the creation of a Fund for the financing of 16 social projects presented by employees, through the Call for Social Projects “Euros from your Payroll”. At the event, awards were presented to the winning projects.
The “Euros de tu Nómina” fund is used annually to finance the projects that are selected as beneficiaries of the aid in the corresponding Call for Social Projects. The Group’s employees in Spain will select by vote the projects that will benefit from the aid from the finalists chosen by a committee created for this purpose. The number of projects that will receive the aid may vary depending on the endowment of the fund.
The winning projects of this XIII Call for “Euros from Your Payroll”, were divided into the categories of Early Childhood Education, International Cooperation, Disability, Social Inclusion and Health. The Award funding is fund by the monthly contributions made by the employees of the companies that make up the Santander Group in Spain, who join the program as participants.
