Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is a set of voluntary actions that companies take into consideration so that their activities have positive effects on society and affirm the principles and values that govern them. These actions include both their own internal methods and processes and their relationship with other actors.
The concept of corporate social responsibility encompasses a set of business management practices, strategies, and systems that seek a new balance amongst a company’s economic, social, and environmental aspects.
The General Foundation of the University of Málaga, as a socially responsible entity, wants to actively contribute to the social, economic, and environmental betterment of Málaga’s society. With this objective, agreements have been signed with institutions such as Proyecto Hombre, Fundación ONCE, and the Fundación CUDECA as well as collaborations with other entities, including the Ángeles Malagueños de la Noche association and Animación Malacitana.
Furthermore, it has lent its support for one-off projects such as the “An NF-walker for Iván” campaign, in which the FGUMA donated one euro for each enrolment in the XV Modern Language Courses. Another one-time collaboration was with the II Female Rugby Tournament Against Cancer, an event that sought to bring visibility to the disease as well as raise awareness amongst women about the fight against this illness through rugby.
Within the framework of the 2018 UMA Summer Courses, organised by the FGUMA, four activities for charity were carried out in which funds were collected for associations and NGOs in the various locations where the seminars were held. See the news story
Likewise, in the 2019 edition of these courses, two similar activities were carried out: one in Vélez-Málaga and another in Málaga city. More information
