"Finanzas para todos" awards
In 2016, the Financial Education Plan held the “Finanzas para Todos” [finance for all] awards for the first time, with the aim of boosting the quality, excellence and impartiality of financial education initiatives in Spain. The annual “Finanzas para Todos” awards seek to recognise the work of individuals and institutions showing exceptional commitment and dedication in the field of financial education.
In its first edition, the winning initiative was “Inclusive Finance”, created by Fundación ONCE, with the goal of giving mentally disabled people access to financial education. The 2017 edition had two winners from two different categories: the “Finanzas para Todos Award for the Implementation of the Financial Education Plan” was granted to Fundación Mapfre’s project “Insurances and Pensions for Everybody” and the “Finanzas para Todos" award in the category of “Best Financial Education Initiative” went to a Fundación Isadora Duncan initiative aimed at single-parent families.
