Deutsche employees give their time at International Volunteer Day

November 2011 │ Singapore

December 5 is International Volunteer Day. To mark the occasion, 15 staff volunteers took time out from their weekend to offer a hand at the Deutsche Bank sponsored "Fire Pitch" event held at Scape, Singapore on Saturday, November 26.

The event offered non-profit organisations an opportunity to pitch their cause to an invited corporate audience in a bid to win engaged giving for their proposed initiative or programme. Our volunteers helped with organising the logistics at the event. The Fire Pitch was part of the larger International Volunteer Day celebrations organised by the National Volunteer and Philanthropy Centre.

Two Deutsche Bank sponsored cash awards, "Most Compelling Pitch" and "Most Creative Pitch", worth SGD4,000 each were up for grabs. The winners, decided through votes from over 100 members of the audience,  were the Singapore Association for the Deaf (which offers support for the hearing-impaired) and We Care Community Services (which assist persons with addiction problems) respectively.
