Amidst the pandemic, Security Bank employees nationwide gathered virtually for an online concert for a cause organized by Security Bank’s corporate social responsibility arm, Security Bank Foundation, Inc (SBFI) on December 18, 2020.
Entitled “Perfect Harmony”, the online concert was held to raise funds for SBFI’s scholarship program called Regalo Mo, Kinabukasan Ko (RMKK). The said initiative aims to provide education assistance to the bank’s agency personnel such as the security guards, messengers, janitors, and other support staff. The scholarship program also extends to their children.
The bank’s employees, foundation scholars and external guests showcased various song numbers and dance performances to start off the festivities. The concert’s theme was inspired by Security Bank’s modernized yin and yang logo.
“I am truly grateful for the opportunity to use my talent to inspire Security Bankers and lend a hand to my fellow scholars,” said Leann Patrice Ganzon, Foundation Scholar at University of the Philippines Diliman who sang a Christmas song during the concert.
Apart from the concert ticket proceeds, Security Bank also raised a significant amount for the scholarship program by reallocating budgets from previously planned physical events and through the donations of Security Bank employees.
“The online concert was a great opportunity to spend time and connect with fellow Security Bankers. It’s one of those initiatives that made me feel that I truly belong to an organization that genuinely cares for people, especially in this difficult time. The exciting and heartwarming performances were a welcome bonus!” shared Solaida Dy, Change Engagement Officer.
To date, Security Bank Foundation’s CSR initiatives for education also include the construction of school buildings through the Build a School, Build a Nation program, an external scholarship program called Scholars for a Better Community, and the production of educational videos in partnership with Ateneo de Manila University and Knowledge Channel.
