The Bank’s UK-based employees chose from six shortlisted charities. The two selected charities will form a year-long partnership with the Bank to raise awareness and funding.Over £600,000 to date has been raised for Deutsche Bank’s 2011 Charities of the Year, The Eve Appeal and War Child. In 2010 over £1.7 million was raised for the two charities: £1.2 million of donations made by staff were matched pound for pound by Deutsche Bank.Deutsche Bank originally supported single large national charities like NSPCC, Mencap and British Red Cross. Since 2008/09 however it has focused on supporting smaller charities, believing it can make a bigger impact with this kind of organisation. The criteria for selection this year was that the charity must have an income of between £0.5 million and £5 million.Charities are not able to apply for the partnership. Instead, between 1 and 17 June this year, employees were asked to nominate charities. Nominated charities are then invited to apply, and are then shortlisted by a selection committee. An online vote takes place at the beginning of September and the two most popular charities announced in the second half of September. The new partnership begins on 2 January in the new year.www.db.com/unitedkingdom/content/en/1085.html Deutsche Bank chooses two Charities of the Year for 2012 Howard Lake | 26 September 2011 | News About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.
