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:
