The Credit Suisse APAC Foundation focuses on improving the employability, aspirations and financial education of disadvantaged young people and the financial inclusion of underprivileged populations across Asia Pacific (APAC) (excluding India). We do this by supporting organizations who operate in a sustainable way through multi-year partnerships involving both financial support, capacity building and employee engagement.
Grant making covers the Asia Pacific region with the exception of India. Credit Suisse India entities comply with the 2% CSR regulatory spend as per the 2013 India Companies Act. All grant making in India is governed by the India Philanthropy Committee and the grant portfolio focuses on Future Skills, Financial Inclusion, Financial Education, Quality and Inclusive Education as well as Environment, Sustainable Livelihoods and Community Development.
