IN SINGAPORE, CORPORATE CITIZENSHIP
The Citi Foundation seeks to promote economic growth and enhance the lives of low-income communities throughout the globe via grants and stakeholder partnerships. Since 2002, the Citi Foundation has given grants to local partners in Singapore to assist programs that address community needs. More than S$21 million has been spent in financial inclusion and programs under the ‘Pathways to Progress’ theme to impart skillsets to adolescents in order to facilitate their future employment up until 2020. The Citi Foundation’s “More than Philanthropy” strategy also utilizes Citi’s and its employees’ knowledge via volunteering in order to meet the firm’s objective and have a beneficial influence on the community.
Under the two basic pillars that drive our primary philanthropic activities – Financial Inclusion and Pathways to Progress – Citi Singapore operates six Citi Foundation programs. We believe that implementing targeted initiatives under these pillars in collaboration with universities and community organizations to improve financial literacy, as well as youth empowerment and employability, will strengthen the local community’s well-being and upward economic mobility, and ensure our society’s long-term growth.
We have taught financial literacy to over 340,000 secondary and primary school students, 50,000 tertiary students, and 6,000 mature women through these programs, as well as coached over 13,000 teachers, 1,400 social workers, and 830 tertiary students to become financial literacy trainers, and mobilized over 170,000 volunteers for over 150 social service agencies.
