Grant Guidelines

Deutsche Bank Americas Foundation administers the philanthropic activities of Deutsche Bank within the United States, Latin America and Canada. Together, the Bank's Community Development Finance Group and Foundation carry out the firm's corporate citizenship commitments through a program of loans, investments and grants. Based in New York City, where the majority of grants are awarded, the Foundation supports nonprofit organizations that concentrate on community development, education, and social and creative enterprise.

Deutsche Bank Americas Foundation works in partnership with local nonprofit organizations to provide underserved communities with opportunities for safe and affordable housing and economic advancement. The Foundation also seeks to enrich these communities by providing access to strong schools and other learning environments, supporting local leaders, and strengthening local organizations. The Bank relies on the talents of its employees and the leadership of its management to leverage its financial commitments in addressing local needs.
