Cairo Amman Bank provided financial support to the President Mahmoud Abbas Fund to support Palestinian students in Lebanon.
Cairo Amman Bank’s support for culture and art is evident in that it is the only bank that has a gallery in its headquarters building, as it is considered a national and Arab incubator for visual artists and a hub for young talents who race to win the annual prize of the bank, which is has allocated for the most distinguished paintings that express topics related to community culture. In 2015, Cairo Amman Bank Gallery held a number of art exhibitions for elite Jordanian and Arab artists, including the exhibition of Abdel Aziz, who is one of the of founders of the Jordanian visual art movement.

The bank, in its partnership with the Friends of Jordan Festivals Association, continued to provide support and sponsorship for the association’s activities, which included during the year theatrical and musical performances of a number of prestigious international bands. This support comes from the bank’s belief in supporting the cultural movement, as these events provide an opportunity to learn about new cultures in addition to boosting tourism by positioning Jordan as a leading cultural destination for musical and theatrical performances and highlighting archaeological sites in Jordan. During the year, the bank also supported the Jerash Festival, the Royal Society of Fine Arts, and the Human Rights Film Festival, in addition to a number of other cultural events.
Cairo Amman Bank is keen on supporting and adopting the policy of the Central Bank of Jordan in the field of financial inclusion and making financial services available to various segments of society, as this issue has an impact on comprehensive and sustainable growth and consequently financial, social and political stability, economic development as well as the protection of the financial consumer. In addition to the bank’s contribution to supporting the project of spreading community financial culture led by the Central Bank of Jordan, the bank has developed a number of banking services that contribute to achieving the objectives of financial inclusion. The bank went to Jordanian universities by signing cooperation agreements with the University of Jordan, Yarmouk University, and Princess Sumaya University to convert the ID card of students, administrative staff, and university faculty members into a multi-use smart card that students and employees can benefit from as an electronic payment card which its holder can use to pay on all electronic points of sale and via the internet, thus the bank allowed university students to obtain financial payment services through these cards. The bank also continued its cooperation with many international organizations that distribute cash assistance to refugees residing in the Kingdom by providing the possibility to obtain this assistance through debit cards from ATMs or using the eye-scan system, so that beneficiaries can get assistance through the bank branches and ATMs equipped with eye scanners, which improves the level of services and ensures that support reaches those who deserve it. The bank is constantly developing these services in cooperation with international aid providers with the aim of including the largest possible number of beneficiaries and making aid disbursements through the banking system. The bank is benefiting from programs and agreements guaranteeing facilities with a number of agencies in terms of increasing the number and size of guaranteed loans, which leads to the possibility of facilitating customer transactions, especially small and medium-sized companies. A number of programs have taken into account directing lending to the governorates of the Kingdom and supporting the youth, women, and modern projects, in addition to the targeted economic sectors within the medium-term advances program granted by the Central Bank of Jordan for the sectors of industry, energy, tourism, agriculture, and information technology.

This support is part of the bank’s efforts to build the younger generation and create future leaders. The bank also contributed to the rehabilitation of sports facilities in a village in Palestine.
As for Palestine, in appreciation of the responsibility entrusted to it towards the Palestinian local community, Cairo Amman Bank continued its sponsorship of national events and occasions, as the bank completed its sponsorship by implementing programs with Injaz Palestine during the academic year 2015, by providing a number of its competent employees to carry out specialized training courses, in addition to supervising the implementation activities of the program in a number of schools. The importance of this program comes from the fact that it provides an opportunity to learn about the professional environment and the labor market for this young group by experts specialized in this field, which contributes significantly to preparing this segment for professional life and contributes to creating a new generation capable of leading the labor market in Palestine in the future and advancing it to the highest levels. The bank also sponsored various activities in many fields that serve the educational, health, and sports sectors, in cooperation with various institutions and schools in the West Bank, such as sponsoring the Al-Bireh Youth Foundation football team, donating to the Tubas municipality stadium rehabilitation project, sponsoring a festival held by the Education Directorate in Tulkarm to honor Outstanding students in various school activities, donating $30,000 to support the President Mahmoud Abbas Fund to help Palestinian students in Lebanon, donating to the Dunya Specialized Center for Women’s Oncology for a charity event to support women with breast cancer, providing assistance to the Baseera Forum for Blinds to purchase recording devices for the blind and donate to the SOS Children’s Village.
The bank’s management has set its sights on ensuring that banking services include all segments of society, including people with special needs. Accordingly, the bank has launched a withdrawal service for the blind through an automated teller machine via voice. This service has enabled the blind to rely on themselves through the control keys that have been assigned special codes to facilitate the process of using ATMs by this segment.
