Corporate Social Responsibility

Giving is part of our job

Supporting our communities has always been an important part of Banesco USA’s culture. Giving is part of our job, not only monetarily, but also by working closely with socially responsible organizations such as Kapow, St. Jude Children’s Hospital, and the Network For Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE). Over the past three years, more than half of our employees have been volunteering with one or more of these groups on an ongoing basis. Together, we have logged a total of 1,080 volunteering hours!

In 2018, Banesco USA announced a new company-wide corporate social responsibility strategy. The objective of the new strategy is to address social, economic, and environmental challenges over the next five years through products, services, culture, and operations.

Throughout 2019, our efforts will focus on education and entrepreneurship. We have partnered with Steps Up for Students, Cristo Rey Miami High School, Junior Achievement, and Fundación Comunitaria de Puerto Rico for multiple projects. Learn more about this year’s initiatives:

Junior Achievement

Banesco USA has partnered with Junior Achievement, the world’s largest non-profit organization, dedicated to giving students K-12 the knowledge and skills they need to own their economic success, plan their future and make smart academic and economic choices. Our employees will teach and provide relevant, hands-on experience in financial literacy, work readiness and entrepreneurship. This program supports critical thinking skills and student engagement while helping students merge what they learn in school with the real world.

Junior Achievement and Banesco USA programs help prepare young people for the real world by showing them how to generate wealth and effectively manage it, how to create jobs which make their communities more robust, and how to apply entrepreneurial thinking to the workplace. Students put these lessons into action and learn the value of contributing to their communities.

FUNDACIÓN COMUNITARIA DE PUERTO RICO

This is the first foundation of its kind in Puerto Rico and the Caribbean, and the only one in Puerto Rico today. They promote sustainable access to clean water, renewable energy, housing, community economic development, and education through increased community capital. Banesco USA partnered with this remarkable foundation to help communities in Puerto Rico achieve their social and economic transformation. We donated $20,000 towards reconstruction and growth following the devastation of Hurricane Maria.
