Citi Launches 10th e for Education Campaign
Posted by Colin Lambert. Last updated: September 6, 2022
Citi’s FX business has launched its tenth annual e-for-Education campaign that sees the bank donate a portion of its e-trading proceeds to a selected series of education-focused non-profit organisations that tackle childhood illiteracy and improve access to quality education.
The initiative runs from September 5 to October 31 and follows a record $9.6 million donated in 2021 – a much quieter time in markets generally – which brought the total raised to more than $56 million.
The organisations supported include Asian University for Women, Civic Builders, Ditch the Label, Empower, Fallen Patriots, Malala Fund, Pencils of Promise, Place2Be, Reach the World, Room to Read, Teach First, Teach for All and Uncommon Schools. In addition, Citi’s clients and employees also support the selected non-profits through a series of educational activities including CV clinics, mock interviews, trading simulations and economics lessons.
“We are proud to watch e for education grow over the years to support 13 non-profit organisations, whose operations complement Citi’s global footprint and support our commitment to improving education in the communities where we operate,” says Stuart Staley, global head of Citi FX.
