This year, the Credit Suisse EMEA Foundation celebrates its ten-year anniversary. Since inception, the Foundation has been dedicated to improving the educational attainment, aspirations and employability of disadvantaged young people across the region. Central to our ethos is our commitment to funding multi-year partnerships that bring the bank’s wealth of knowledge and network to bear on behalf of charities. This holistic approach is seen as vital to deepening impact and building capacity. In 2017 alone, over 4,300 employees volunteered nearly 45,000 hours to make a difference in the community.
