Deutsche Bank recognized among Jacksonville's Top Companies That Care

Deutsche Bank today announced that it has been named among the 'Top Companies That Care', an annual program sponsored by Jacksonville Magazine. Now in its eighth year, the award honors Northeast Florida’s most community-minded businesses for their leadership and service.

In 2009, Deutsche Bank employees volunteered more than 1,700 hours in the Jacksonville community through volunteer efforts benefiting over 30 local nonprofit organizations. Deutsche Bank supports local charities focused on housing, poverty alleviation, employment and education, with an emphasis on serving distressed communities, through financial contributions and employee volunteer hours.

“Being selected as one of Jacksonville’s Top Companies That Care by Jacksonville Magazine is an honor and testament to our commitment to give back to Jacksonville,” said John Lafond, Head of Deutsche Bank Jacksonville. “As our business in Jacksonville continues to grow, so will our volunteer and philanthropic efforts.”
