This is the entity resulting from the transformation of Caja de Ahorros y Pensiones de Barcelona (La Caixa) into a banking foundation, carried out in 2014 to comply with the Law on Savings Banks and Banking Foundations (Law 26/2013, of December 27). Its mission is to manage the social and cultural work inherited from the savings bank.
In November 2006, the Board of Directors of La Caixa approved the IPO of its portfolio of investees, through the company Criteria CaixaCorp, which became effective on October 10, 2007.
At the same time, in July 2011, another subsidiary of the group was created, in this case wholly owned by La Caixa, called Criteria CaixaHolding, which would not be listed on the stock exchange and would bring together the less attractive holdings in the stock market, such as real estate services (Servihábitat) and industrial holdings (Gas Natural Fenosa, Abertis…) and in PortAventura World.
In March 2012, the group announced an agreement by which it acquired for 979 million euros and subsequently integrated within CaixaBank the SIP formed by Cajasol (including Caja de Guadalajara), Caja Navarra, CajaCanarias and Caja de Burgos, commercially known until then as Banca Cívica. The «Banca Cívica» brand was discarded and the SIP was liquidated, transferring its customers, offices and assets to CaixaBank. Even so, due to cultural roots, the entity decided to keep the logo of the savings banks that gave rise to the integration in its branches and communications in the offices, combining them with the logo of the Catalan bank, but only in the territories of influence of each entity. The bank’s logo was also used in the branches of the Catalan bank.
The Incorpora project is a collaboration (including between companies), with social and economic impact. More than 10 entities participate, among them the «la Caixa» Banking Foundation, in charge of coordinating the project, Decathlon, El Corte Inglés, Fnac, Grupo Vips, Henkel, Mapfre, NH Hoteles and other companies and social entities. The initiative aims to promote the social and labor insertion of vulnerable groups through the training and services of labor insertion technicians who support companies and workers to facilitate the hiring process of vulnerable groups.
The social impact has benefited 370,000 people in vulnerable situations and has opened up the possibility of more than 160,000 insertions in the labor market. During this project, access to means/resources has been facilitated in order to satisfy primary needs by obtaining employment.
CaixaBank Volunteering was created in 2005 with the aim of integrating solidarity into the day-to-day work of the bank’s employees. Together with them, family members, friends and customers also form part of the Association with the aim of improving society.
Employability and social insertion: We contribute to facilitate access to the labor market for vulnerable people. We also collaborate with entrepreneurs to promote and materialize their ideas and projects.
Financial education: We provide our financial knowledge to teach concepts on basic economics to different vulnerable groups, highlighting the great acceptance of our program in schools «Finance for Young People» highlighted in the prestigious PISA Report on Financial Competences.
CaixaBank Volunteers make it easy for you: in addition to offering you the guarantee of a century-old tradition of social commitment, we can provide you with the activity that suits you, whatever your interests and schedule.
