In 2010, as a result of the European debt crisis, it was merged with Caja Canarias, Cajasol and Caja Navarra, and incorporated as a bank by means of a new notarial instrument, forming Banca Civica.[2][3] In 2012, it was subsequently absorbed by CaixaBank.[4][5]

Starting in 2013, the charity part of the savings bank was established as a non-profit foundation, dedicated to support the cultural heritage and social activities eventually maintained by the bank.[1] Its charity activities included giving the award "Excellent Youth" (Jóvenes Excelentes) starting from 2006.[6]
