Until May 4, 2017, Deutsche Bank UK employees will be nominating their favourite charities to become one of two Charities of the Year (COTY) for 2018 and 2019. Act now to ensure your charity is in the running!
To be considered, charities must align with the bank’s commitment to building stronger and more inclusive communities. They must have a clear focus on helping society’s most disadvantaged, promoting social inclusion, reducing isolation and improving access to services. Charities must be able to demonstrate how they are directly addressing one or more of the below areas:
- Disability (physical or mental)
- Gender inequality
- LGBT discrimination
- Poor access to education
- Refugees or minority groups
- Disenfranchised (eg: elderly, homelessness, addiction)
- Health (including epidemic and pandemic diseases)
The UK COTY programme is a two-year partnership with two charities that have been nominated and voted for by our UK employees. The programme has raised more than £17.5 million for 26 charities since it was established in 1999.
The charities work together with the bank's Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) team to organise a range of fundraising activities and events for Deutsche Bank employees throughout the partnership. This has included overseas treks, cycle challenges, holiday raffles, online auctions, pub quizzes, balls, mass participation challenge events, fundraising appeals and much more. However, Deutsche Bank’s partnerships with small charities go beyond just fundraising, helping them to capacity build and providing them with access to in-house resources and expertise to help them solve real world challenges.
In 2016, Deutsche Bank extended the one year programme to two years, increasing the impact to the chosen charities, and building a stronger partnership between employees and the causes. The current COTY are Autistica and Hope and Homes for Children.
