• In the community

    More than 800 million people live in extreme poverty. An integral part of Deutsche Bank’s corporate citizenship is to care for those at the margins of society.

What do we want to achieve?

  • Help the disadvantaged
  • Promote innovative community concepts
  • Support disaster relief efforts
     

How are we implementing that?

We work at the grassroots level to improve the day-to-day well-being of those in need and to help communities find longer-term solutions to their challenges. Through our investments, grants, donations, and the hands-on commitment of our corporate volunteers, we help to alleviate poverty, or the consequences of forced migration, joblessness, and homelessness. Our initiatives make a tangible contribution to the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations.

The non-profit Alfred Herrhausen Gesellschaft (AHG) stimulates research and offers platforms for dialogue and the analysis of current issues, working with partners from politics, economics, science, and civil society.

What have we achieved?

> 1.3m

In 2020, more than 1.3 million people worldwide benefited from our 188 community projects in 28 countries.

>4.2 m

Since 2015, our community initiatives have impacted 4.2 million lives.

~650.000

Our COVID-19 community relief campaign raised over €2.5m for 40 charities, enabling them to provide food and shelter to around 650,000 individuals.

Our goal is to make a positive impact on the lives of two million people by 2025.
