Security Bank Foundation scholarship fundraising program receives Quill Excellence Award for employee engagement

Security Bank Foundation, Inc. (SBFI) proudly clinched its 3rd Philippine Quill Award of Excellence, this time for being one of the best in employee engagement through its “Regalo Mo, Kinabukasan Ko” (RMKK) internal fundraising program for the scholarship provided to Security Bank guards, messengers, janitors and other agency personnel.

The award was received by SBFI Trustee and Corporate Secretary Melissa Aquino and Executive Director Louie De Real from International Association of Business Communicators (IABC) Philippines last January 23, 2024 at Marriott Grand Ballroom, Newport, Pasay City.

This is the 8th Philippine Quill trophy of SBFI since 2015 –  now having 3 Excellence Awards (highest distinction) and 5 Merit Awards under its belt.

The RMKK program generated 40% of the annual fund needed for the scholarship of the Bank’s agency personnel, having an average of 100 employees attending each event in 2022 – with the Christmas Concert for a Cause event generating the highest attendance of 959. The SBFI, in partnership with the Bank’s other departments, implemented virtual activities such as Name It to Win It, The Singing Bee, Bingo Night, Family Feud, The Price is Right, 4Pics 1Word, Trivia Night, and Live Selling.

Notably, these activities gave valuable opportunities for employee engagement for both Bank employees who are on work from home setup and for employees stationed in provincial branches and offices, all while helping send more scholars to school.

Moreover, the RMKK program also allowed employees to adopt a scholar for a year through sponsorship of their full year tuition expense and allowances. Employees who accessed internal skill-building platform LinkedIn Learning also helped generate funds for the program with Php 1 for every hour spent in the platform – a program done in collaboration with Security Bank’s training and development arm, SB Academy.

The SBFI also ensured a variety of channels for donation which may be done either through cash deposit, credit card one-time or installment charging, and conversion of credit card reward points as donation.

Beyond raising funds, the program aimed to increase Security Bank employees’ awareness and interest of its companies’ CSR programs and its advocacy of education. The SBFI’s RMKK scholarship program has graduated 46 scholars in college, with 5 receiving Latin honors and 6 employed in Security Bank.
