CITI’S APPROACH TO CORPORATE CITIZENSHIP

Citizenship is core to Citi and is deeply embedded in our mission of enabling growth and progress around the world. It is a responsibility shared by our employees, businesses, clients, suppliers and communities.

CORPORATE CITIZENSHIP IN SINGAPORE

With support from the Citi Foundation, Citi Singapore has been a strong advocate of Financial Inclusion and Youth Economic Opportunities since 2002 with S$17 million to date. Citi’s commitment to the key focus areas of Financial Inclusion and Youth Economic Opportunities stems from the belief that the efforts will enhance the financial well-being and upward economic mobility of individuals and communities, which in turn strengthens the demand for financial products and services that enable the sustained growth of cities and economies.

Funding goes towards programmes organised in partnership with NGOs, government organizations and educational institutions. The initiatives have benefited students, the young, teachers, mature women and the general public, reaching more than 425,000 students from over 80% of schools in Singapore and more than 6,000 low-income mature women who are amongst the most financially vulnerable in Singapore.

The Citi Foundation’s “More than Philanthropy” approach also leverages the expertise of Citi and its people to volunteer and contribute meaningfully to a wide range of community initiatives organised around the annual Global Community Day and volunteer opportunities held throughout the year. The spirit of volunteerism amongst Citi employees is also consistently strong. Over 8 years from 2010 to 2017, the annual number of volunteers exceeds 4,500.

Citi Singapore has also been a keen supporter of The Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund and The Business Times Budding Artists Fund with over S$4.9 million to help build brighter futures for underprivileged children since 2002. The funds are mainly raised through various fundraising campaigns organised or contributed by employees.
