Citi and the Citi Foundation are working in new ways to help build equitable and resilient communities
The Citi Foundation, a private foundation funded by Citi, works to promote economic progress and improve the lives of people in low-income communities around the world. The Foundation invests in efforts that increase financial inclusion, catalyze job opportunities for youth, and reimagine approaches to building economically vibrant communities. The Foundation’s "More than Philanthropy" approach leverages the enormous expertise of Citi and its people to fulfill our mission and drive thought leadership and innovation.
Underlying the Foundation’s strategy is the notion that no single institution can address systemic challenges by working in a silo. This is why the Foundation relies on a variety of partnerships - with nongovernmental organizations (NGOs), academic institutions, governments and the private sector — to succeed.
“Conducting an audit of our ARE initiative will help us assess the impact our work is having and will help inform how to adapt and grow our work to address the racial wealth gap.” – Ed Skyler, Executive Vice President, Citi
It’s going to take us all, working side-by-side, to tackle the world’s greatest social, economic and environmental challenges.
