Now, more than ever, is the time to show our solidarity with those who have been worst affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Our goal is to raise at least €25 million around the world with contributions voluntarily made by the Group's employees in all countries To start the fund, Executive Chairman Ana Botin and CEO Jose Antonio Alvarez have contributed 50% of their fixed and variable remuneration for 2020.

Besides this, now we are creating a separate sum to allow our customers, providers and the society in general to contribute fighting this global pandemic.

These contributions will be used to cover immediate needs, such as the production and acquisition of medical equipment, protection clothing and other equipment necessary to treat patients infected with the virus, as well as donations to recognised authorities and institutions.

Any donation can help to save a life and we encourage you to join us in this endeavour. The more of us who can contribute, the more people we can help together.

In parallel, we have delivered 100 non-invasive respirators acquired with the proceeds of #LaLigaSantanderFest to hospitals in Henares, Infanta Leonor, Infanta Sofía and Infanta Cristina in the Spanish capital and in the Tajo Hospital in Aranjuez.

These provisions were made possible by our operating partners in Aquanima and our teams in China from Santander Asia. An immense effort that has resulted in great success to date. 

Company from Madrid in charge of distribution

We are collaborating with a company from Madrid to arrange delivery of all the medical equipment purchased. They are managing the process from the moment the materials arrive at its warehouse in the Spanish capital until it is delivered to the destination points determined by the Ministry.

They are in charge of all tasks related to the distribution of the medical equipment, from packing, loading and unloading of the trucks to the driving of the cranes. The company is formed only of women and one of those women, Paloma, says she is moved every time they make a delivery by the incredible response of those who receive it, especially by the Army. "They were extremely nice, friendly and cordial, thanking us again and again for the Bank's donation," she said.

It is a Group-wide global fund that aims to meet immediate needs during the COVID-19 pandemic, such as the production and acquisition of medical equipment, protective clothing and other equipment that are necessary to treat patients infected with the virus, and to make donations to the relevant authorities and institutions. The Bank expects the fund to reach at least 25 million euros.   Under no circumstances is it a financial product.

The Fund will be made up of contributions arising from the reduction in remuneration of the Board and senior management of the Bank and with contributions voluntarily made by the Group's employees in all countries.

Initially, the Fund is open to all Santander Group employees in all countries. If you are not a Santander employee you can contribute through a different bank account.

By transferring to the designated account (details above). Remember that you can make as many transfers of any amount as you want for as long as the crisis lasts and that the Fund is in effect. If you are a Santander employee your country organization will enable a process to make contributions easily through your payroll.

Each country will decide the beneficiaries of the funds that are raised among its employees. 

The aim of this initiative is to help combat the global health crisis caused by coronavirus.  When the situation returns to normal, the Fund will cease to be in force.  Santander has multiple ongoing donation schemes and volunteer initiatives in all countries to contribute to the progress of communities.

There are two ways to participate:

  • By transferring to the designated account (details above). Remember that you can make as many transfers of any amount as you want for as long as the crisis lasts and that the Fund is in effect.
  • Through periodic contributions that will be deducted from your payroll at the end of each month.  You can change the amount of the contribution whenever you want depending on your needs.  You can also cancel the contribution at any time.

Yes. To modify or cancel your contribution you must call 902 450 540.

No, you can contribute as much or as little as you wish.

To help you make a decision about how much to donate, different help packages are outlined above.  Each of them shows the materials, or part thereof, your contribution will buy.

These packages are indicative.  You don't need to choose a specific package to make your donation.  It is simply a reference to help you know what can be purchased with the contribution you want to make.

In Spain, the funds will be allocated mostly to the Ministry of Health through which all local aid is being channeled, as well as to other authorities and institutions.

Contributions will be used to meet immediate needs, such as the production and procurement of medical equipment, protective clothing and other equipment that are necessary to treat patients infected with the virus.  All this will be done through the Spanish health authorities.  In any case, the Fund will always seek to respond to the needs that are the highest priority at all times.

The Ministry of Health and other potential public entities to which the Fund will contribute may be entities subject to Law 49/2002 on tax incentives for patronage.  However, as the Bank centralises and makes this contribution, it will be necessary to wait for more specific regulation in future of this exceptional procedure in order to specify the possible tax incentive where appropriate.

No.  Euros de tu Nómina is an independent program that is intended to finance the projects of the 12 NGO winners of the Call for Social Projects Euros on your payroll. 

In any case, in the edition of the Convocatoria por Proyectos Sociales 2021 (Call for Social Projects 2021) it will be considered to offer the opportunity to dedicate part of the Euros de tu Nomina contributions to projects related to this pandemic depending on its evolution at that time.

The Bank will be transparent and will periodically publish the medical material donated through the efforts of all employees as well as the specific destinations that the Ministry of Health is using the funds for, which will always correspond to highest priority needs at any moment.

Yes. The Executive Chairman, Ana Botín, and the CEO, José Antonio Álvarez, will deploy 50% of their 2020 remuneration (fixed and variable) to the fund, while non-executive directors will contribute 20% of their remuneration.
