Embarking on Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives complements OFBank’s business efforts to address the needs of the communities we serve, apart from imbuing our employees with civic spirit, a sense of purposive volunteerism, and solidarity and engagement with these communities. It is a powerful means for demonstrating to our stakeholders and the general public OFBank’s values of mission, service and compassion.

Our Corporate Social Responsibility Program revolves around themes aligned with our corporate goals and mission: Governance, and Growth and Relevance.

1.  Governance

Through its CSR Program, OFBank contributes to the “Daang Matuwid Program”, and the pervasive campaign against graft and corruption, via awareness-raising events and communication campaigns aimed at highlighting the values of honesty, integrity, simple lifestyle and loyalty to the Republic and the Filipino people, as exemplified by the President of the Philippines. It will promote citizen participation, particularly among the children and youth.

2.  Growth and Relevance

As OFBank expands into the rural areas with the opening of its Micro Banking Offices, it stands to position itself more strategically to support the Government’s inclusive growth program. Its CSR Program will complement the Bank’s business activities for the poor by partnering with NGOs and other community-based organizations in assisting communities build their capacities for fighting poverty through savings mobilization, education, training, employment promotion, entrepreneurship development, and resiliency-building in light of climate change
