Madrid, June 11, 2024 – PRESS RELEASE

Her Majesty the Queen presided over the award ceremony of the XVI “Euros de tu Nómina” Call this morning, held at Ciudad Grupo Santander. Accompanied by Banco Santander’s president, Ana Botín, and in front of more than 500 attendees, the sixteen initiatives selected by the bank’s employees in Spain were recognized and will receive funds to carry out their chosen projects.

Her Majesty the Queen, who once again reiterated her commitment to the “Euros de tu Nómina” celebration, stated: “Thank you, thank you to all who think of others, to those who take action to make change real, so that a person with Down syndrome can achieve stable employment, so that someone with ALS can have hope and see more research; more research, so that a vulnerable young person feels welcomed, so that a child with a neurological disease receives support, so that an elderly person feels they are not alone and abandoned. Thank you. And my second message, also very brief, is one of admiration and respect for all the people who dedicate so much energy, resources, and time to make everything we have just seen possible.”

Ana Botín, president of Banco Santander, thanked the Queen for her participation and the commitment she has always shown to this initiative, and specified that: “We live in a very complicated geopolitical context, marked by war and armed conflicts that are causing enormous tragedies and impacting the global economy, especially the most vulnerable. In these times, more than ever, we must act with responsibility and solidarity to ensure economic and social well-being. We need to listen to the voices of those who need us and work together to respond to them.”

Botín highlighted that “we must collaborate to implement solid and sustainable projects over time that help transform the world and build a better future for everyone.” She pointed to the “Euros de tu Nómina” initiative as a fantastic platform for many of these causes.

Among the winners is the Association of Multiple Sclerosis of Toledo and other neurological diseases (ADEMTO), which will receive 28,487 euros to generate individualized 3D-printed products adapted to the specific anatomy and needs of each patient, improving their mobility, autonomy, and quality of life.

Euros de tu Nómina

“Euros de tu Nómina” is one of Banco Santander’s most significant initiatives, engaging thousands of employees committed to social causes and supporting NGOs that work daily to help the most vulnerable groups. This solidarity initiative has reached its sixteenth edition, distributing nearly 700,000 euros among the 16 awarded organizations.

In this edition, 246 associations participated, presenting their projects, with 30 finalists and 16 winning projects. The winning projects are funded through the “Euros de tu Nómina” Fund, made up of contributions from employees who donate a monthly amount through their payroll. All the money raised annually is matched by the Bank. Since this program started, over 6 million euros have been distributed among the 137 winning projects, helping nearly 650,000 people.

As a new feature of this edition, and with the intention of providing funds not only to large projects but also to medium and small ones, each of the four categories in the call will have four winners, three of which will receive 48,487 euros and one 28,487 euros.

Additionally, during the event, three winning projects from the Santander Ayuda Awards by Fundación Banco Santander were recognized for their contribution to combating child and adolescent poverty in Spain. These projects – Intervención psicosocial con infancia vulnerable by Asociación Ciudad Joven, Futuro, música by Asociación Norai, and Inclusión social de menores en situación de pobreza by Asociación Nuevo Futuro – provide comprehensive support to children and adolescents to ensure that their economic circumstances do not prevent them from fully enjoying their rights and having better future opportunities.

Social investment to support the community

Banco Santander maintains its commitment to the progress of people and society through the support of hundreds of social projects in all the countries in which it is present, clearly impacting the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) of the Nations United.

In 2023, the Santander Group allocated 174 million euros, 105 in support of higher education, employability and entrepreneurship and 69 in other local community support initiatives that have helped more than 2.2 million people. In Spain, the entity allocated 13 million euros for these purposes, aimed at the most vulnerable groups or those at risk of social exclusion. Added to this financial support are the 83,000 volunteer hours dedicated by more than 27,000 Santander employees to help groups such as people with disabilities, seniors who suffer from loneliness, or provide training to those who need it most.

During this year, financial education constituted a strategic pillar. In Spain, more than 440 bank volunteers participated as trainers in the free financial education workshops taught through the ‘Finance for Mortals’ programs; ‘Your Finances, your Future’, promoted by the AEB or ‘Financial Education in the Schools of Catalonia’, promoted by the Institute of Financial Studies.

Preventing early school leaving and promoting the work skills of people with disabilities, women, children with difficulties and other vulnerable groups also remained a priority. Each subsidiary develops its own program based on local needs. In Spain, we launched several programs to strengthen the digital skills of girls in disadvantaged areas, older people and other vulnerable groups.

In addition, Santander, through Santander Universities, has helped more than 33,000 people in Spain with scholarships, employability training and entrepreneurship programs. And through the Universia Foundation, more than 1,500 students with disabilities have been supported.
