The Deutsche Bank Middle East Foundation

Deutsche Bank’s Middle East Foundation was established in November of 2008. It is the latest initiative to join the family of the Bank’s foundations in Asia, Africa and the Americas. In addition, Deutsche Bank has active CR programs across Europe and the UK. Deutsche Bank’s Middle East Foundation focuses on funding investments in education, community development, sustainability, and volunteering in the Middle East North Africa region.

Philippe Vollot, Chairman of the Middle East Foundation, said: “Our decision to establish Deutsche Bank’s Middle East Foundation stems from our deep-seated belief in the necessity of companies contributing to the societies in which they operate. Our commitment today reflects a strong and long-standing commitment to the Middle East and its people, and our desire to positively contribute to shaping its future, and in turn, our own.”

Throughout the years, Deutsche Bank’s Middle East Foundation supported many regional and local NGO projects and initiatives to build social capital by creating opportunities, fostering talent and ensuring long-term viability in the region such as: Palestine Association for Children’s Encouragement of Sport in Palestine, Rene Moawad Foundation in Lebanon,  Institute of Business Administration in Pakistan, Al-Holailah Charity Society in Riyadh, The Junior Business Association in Egypt and Rashid Pediatric Therapy Center in the United Arab Emirates.

 

In addition, Deutsche Bank’s Middle East Foundation works closely with global foundations and organizations like Save the Children and the World Wide Fund for Nature in support of their regional programs to improve the lives of the underprivileged, to pave ways to a better future and to raise ecological awareness.
