• In the community

    More than 700 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?


In 2021, more than 843,000 people worldwide benefitted from our 131 community projects in 20 countries.

4.9 million

Since 2015, our community initiatives have impacted 4.9 million lives.


Deutsche Bank, its employees, and Deutsche Bank Foundation donated over € 980,000 for the victims of the flood disaster in Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands, and Luxembourg.

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