Our commitment

Through our social action programs, we promote the integration of groups at risk of social exclusion, offering backing and support to people in the most disadvantaged of situations and to their families, relying on education as a development tool and assisting them to get into the labor market.

We firmly believe that everyone that forms part of our society should have the opportunity to be able to develop both personally and socially.

Through our  corporate volunteer program, our objective is to channel the spirit of solidarity shown by different collectives into activities that benefit the most needy.

We are close to you

We are currently present in 25 countries, in which we carry out our activities in collaboration with institutions and non-profit organizations.

Each year, we reach almost 3,000,000 beneficiaries. And more than 3,500,000 people follow our activities through our website and social media.

Initiatives for society

Here we present the programs and actions we are undertaking with the objective of achieving a better world and a better future for all:

‘Sé Solidario’ Program

The aim is to support small NGOs and associations nationwide through fundraising and encouraging ever more widespread volunteer activities and actions to highlight the value of showing solidarity as one of the most important elements for coexistence in society, achieved through differentiated social causes:

  • Vidas Cruzadas: through which our intention is to partner directly with projects involved in the physical, psychological and emotional well-being of people affected by rare diseases or disabilities.
  • Cuenta con nosotros: through which we want to take direct action alongside those associations and institutions that help the most needy by providing them with basic necessities (food, clothing, medicines etc.).
  • Help us to improve their future: a personalized sponsorship program for families in extremely vulnerable situations and in need of urgent assistance.

International Social Projects

A society with future prospects is one that encourages the development of its citizens. Our objective is to foster comprehensive education  concentrating mainly on children and young people from disadvantaged communities.

Fundación MAPFRE defines comprehensive education as including all the aspects required to be able to develop fully as a person. That is why we work in collaboration with local organizations on projects that support nutrition, health, educationempowering women and training for entry into the workforce.

Social Employment Program

  • Recruitment grants through which we promote access to the labor market for the unemployed and assist SMEs, the self-employed and social entities to incorporate talent.
  • Juntos Somos Capaces (Together We Can), which encourages the workplace integration of people with intellectual disability and mental illness, by using the employment with support model.
  • APP Soy Cappaz. We have developed this app as a help tool so that people with intellectual disability can lead independent lives, especially in the workplace, improving their level of autonomy and professional integration.

Educational Program

We strongly believe in  education as an essential process in the evolution of society. That is why we have put our full resources at the disposal of schools and teaching professionals, both in and out of the classroom, to come up with innovative experiences that are motivational and make learning easier through:

    • Encouraging best educational practices to achieve inclusion.
    • Applying a cooperation-based work method.
    • New teaching paths to prevent school dropout and failure.
    • The promotion of comprehensive education in disadvantaged environments.

Fundación MAPFRE Volunteer Program

This channels the solidarity activities of the socially committed companies that form part of the program. They encourage their interest groups to take part in volunteer work. The program pursues four lines of activity in over 25 countries: health, nutrition, education, and emergency aid, with the goal of improving the living conditions of the various social groups we assist, in particular the most disadvantaged.

Other activities

Sport and Disability. We want to facilitate access to sport for people with disabilities and to this end we offer the Juntos lo Logramos Programme (Together We Can Do It), which involves activities aimed at people with intellectual disabilities, held in centers throughout Spain, in collaboration with the Special Olympics Foundation Spain. These sporting events are designed so that people with motor and intellectual difficulties can engage in specific physical-sporting activities.
