Foundations

Grupo Petersen allocates its own resources to achieve constant, voluntary and systematic actions of Private Social Investment as part of its commitment to the communities in regions where it conducts its business activity.

Under this philosophy, it has created four foundations: Fundación Banco San Juan (2001), Fundación Banco Santa Fe (2004), Fundación Nuevo Banco Entre Rios (2005) and Fundación Banco Santa Cruz (2006).

The "Mission" of these foundations is to work with the employees, families and local community to promote actions aimed at achieving excellence in education and culture.

In turn, the Banks add to the capital contributed to the Foundations and to the assumed cost for operating and financing projects aimed at equipping institutions and training courses under the Tax Credit regime of the Ministries of Education, Labour and Industry.

The Grupo Petersen's four Foundations express the spirit of a group of people with the common goal of building a better country. Its essence is to develop Solidarity internally through the Corporate Volunteer Program.

The scope of their actions reflects their wish to become catalytic elements. The purpose of these is to facilitate interaction and complementarity of the institutional aims that are necessary for the further growth of the nation. The coordination and cooperation of public and private management is essential to develop policies that will create specific solutions for the community's needs.
