Corporate Social Responsibility
Through Cantilan Bank Foundation, Inc., CBI’s socio-civic arm, the Bank has pursued its long-standing commitment to deliver community-based initiatives. CBI’s corporate social responsibility is anchored on three major components – financial literacy, social preparation, and environmental sustainability.
The Bank regularly conducts financial education among families in the rural areas as an aid to mitigate the number of unbanked individuals in the country. This is also one way to enhance the capacity level of the clients toward personal and family budgeting including credit control. The Bank also teaches its SSC members, mostly school-children, on how to save money at an early age for the purpose of making them future-ready.
As part of its mission to support environmental protection initiatives, CBI employees volunteer themselves in the greening program of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources. The bank holds tree-planting and coastal clean-up activity during its anniversary celebration. This is to protect watersheds and maintain the cleanliness of the ocean in the areas where CBI operates.
CBI firmly believes that environmental sustainability is instrumental to the success of the bank and that the communities can benefit on this.
As a service provider for the Conditional Cash Transfer (CCT) program of the Department of Social Welfare and Development, the Bank goes beyond its main function by providing the 4Ps beneficiaries with livelihood opportunities.
The Bank also offers skills enhancement training among local businessmen through its “Business Asenso” course in partnership with the Department of Trade and Industry. This program helps them learn the basics of accounting and bookkeeping.
To make the communities disaster-ready, the Bank sponsored a forum on Disaster Risk Reduction and Climate Change Adaptation involving partner institutions within the province of Surigao del Sur.
Our programs cover different events such as helping prepare the school for the opening of classes every June as our support for DepEd’s Brigada Eskwela Program, developing the culinary talents of the children and youth through our annual CBI Little Chef every July in time for the national celebration of Nutrition Month, and Career Guidance provided among high school graduating students to help them decide on what course to take during college.
We believe that community involvement is very important that is why we made it our mission.
