Achieving more using less. A greater impact with more limited resources: this is the new challenge facing the Community Welfare Projects of Savings Banks. Are you aware of the dilemmas which Savings Banks’ Community Welfare Projects are up against in this new environment?

  • Greater social needs

    The work being performed through the Community Welfare Projects of Savings Banks is making a decisive contribution towards the creation and promotion of a major network of community institutions, and generating an economic and social impact which it would be difficult to replace, particularly in the current environment.
  • Greater social impact

    According to the report entitled “Analysis of the positioning of Community Welfare Projects against a backdrop of economic crisis”, which was prepared by PwC for the CECA (Association of Spanish Savings Banks), the current situation highlights the need for management of the perception gap between the expectations of interest groups and the reality facing Savings Banks.
  • A greater contribution to business

    Savings Banks’ Community Welfare Projects can and should feature - to an even greater extent – as a key area with direct implications in terms of the contribution made to the business activity.
  • Less funding available

    The current economic situation is resulting in a drastic cut in budgeted funding for Community Welfare Projects. There have been cases in which no funds have been allocated for this purpose for 2011, or in which use has been made of funds from prior years.
  • A more limited capacity for analysis in the medium- and long terms

    Due to the economic crisis, Community Welfare work has come to be analysed from the budgetary perspective exclusively, any reflection on which projects help make these activities essential to the positioning of savings banks being left for some future point in time.
  • Processes and structures less well adapted
