San Patrignano

Fondazione Deutsche Bank Italia supports San Patrignano Community in the fighting against drug addiction. Since 2010, every year we support the realization of a fundraising auction to support the Community's activities.

Fighting Against Drug Addition

2018 ? Milan

Fondazione Deutsche Bank Italia keeps alive its historic commitment to the fight against drugs in Italy supporting the Community of San Patrignano, the most important drug dependency recovery centre in Europe. The Community has been hosting young people with drug problems for more than thirty years: during their stay the young hosts receive education and training in order to gain useful skills and competences to find a job and take autonomous decisions.

Amongst the various fund collecting activities the community organises is an annual charity auction in Milan, between November and December. A gala evening where the protagonists are the young people of San Patrignano. Deutsche Bank and its Foundation have been supporting this important occasion since 2010.

So much has been achieved in recent years together thanks to the auction, helping the young in various aspects of their daily lives: from projects linked to sports, to educational activities and even initiatives to extend health and reception facilities.

The Community of San Patrignano is the most important anti-drug centre in all of Europe and it houses over 1,300 young people. From 1978 to the present day, San Patrignano has welcomed more than 25,000 people from hundreds of different nations, totally free of charge, without charges for either their families or the State, offering them a home, health and legal assistance, the possibility to study, learn a trade and return fully to society at the end of their recovery path. According to research carried out by the University of Bologna, which monitored a group of former guests in the community five years on from their return to society, 72% of the young people who complete the path successfully do not fall back into the problem of drug dependency.

A message from San Patrignano
We appreciate Deutsche Bank support to San Patrignano. Our Community does not ask any economical contribution nor to the State nor to the families of our hosts, guys that we host, carrying them through a growth path, not only to overcome drug addiction, but also to take control of their future. Deutsche Bank's sensitivity help us in this mission, making it possible to realize many projects related to the charity auction in favour of the community
