Community

Basic Approach to Communities

Under its Corporate Mission, "To Develop Further with Regional Societies," the Resona Group complies with social rules as a matter of course, but it also wants broad recognition of its reason for being. To this end, we are continuing our efforts to contribute to local communities as a good corporate citizen.

Community Support through Financial Services

Fund to Encourage Local Enterprises

To provide a smooth flow of financing to local SMEs and individual proprietorships, contribute to stabilizing their cash flows, and support companies in growing industries, the Resona Group banks provide and are actively marketing a wide range of financial products.

Every year, mainly during the summer vacation, the Resona Group holds the "Resona Kids' Money Academy," a financial and economic education activity for children. Through original quizzes and games developed by employees, the seminars teach children about the role of banks and the flow of money through society. This educational program for children has been sponsored by the Group since 2005. The Group is continuing to work to improve this program by developing new curricula and many kinds of collaborative efforts with regional companies and organizations.
