From May 18 until June 28, 2019, charities can apply to be Deutsche Bank’s UK Charity of the Year for 2020-21. For the next partnership, the programme will support just one charity partner, strengthening our collaboration with the chosen charity. Act now to ensure your charity is in the running!
To be considered, charities must align to the theme of mental wellbeing, and meet other eligibility criteria.
The Deutsche Bank Charity of the Year programme is a two-year partnership with pioneering charities. Its aim is to enable charities to build key relationships and focus on initiatives that deliver maximum fundraising and engagement value that help advance their cause and impact.
Established in 1999, the UK programme is a model of employee engagement, fundraising, and collaboration of expertise, and to date has raised over £22.5m for 26 charities and won numerous awards. It forms part of Plus You, Deutsche Bank’s volunteering and giving community, and aims to build employee pride and affinity to Deutsche Bank’s commitment to society.
The bank’s partnerships with charities go beyond fundraising. Exceptional partners are those that can leverage the skills and resources of the bank that will create shared value. Autistica pioneered an autism graduate internship programme in the bank which, alongside the UK, is active in the US; Cure Leukaemia is now developing a prototype mobile app to benefit blood cancer patients worldwide made possible from a 24 hour global hackathon; and Rays of Sunshine was able to expand into community-support service provision following a series of strategy workshops. Charities report support given to organisational change, new business generation and increased profile and networks as significant benefits.
