The UK Charities of the Year programme works to champion two charities, that are nominated and voted for by employees. We work with small charities to provide them with step changing unrestricted funding that enables them to have a transformational impact. Employees raise funds with the elected charities through activities that include sports events, raffles, quizzes, appeals and challenges. Over £2 million was raised in 2016. However, the bank’s partnerships with small charities go beyond just fundraising, helping them to capacity build and providing them with access to in-house resources and expertise to help them solve real world challenges.

Charities for 2016-17

This year we are proud to be working with Autistica, who fund world-class research to into causes, diagnosis and treatment so every child with the autism has the chance to reach their full potential, and Hope and Homes for Children,  who work to ensure that all children have the chance to grow up in the love of a family rather than damaging institutional care, in Europe and Africa.

Two for two years

In 2016, Deutsche Bank extended the one year programme to two years, increasing the impact on the chosen charities, and building a stronger partnership between employees and the causes.


Charities of the Year has raised over £19 million for 26 charities since 1999

One Day

Charities of the Year raised almost £2 million through the bank’s One Day annual fundraising campaigns in 2016 and 2017, where employees donate a day’s salary, that is matched by the bank.
