ABN AMRO Foundation focuses on social projects and initiatives, from social entrepreneurship to helping special needs children take part in sports. ABN AMRO employees are the driving force behind the Foundation, with over 10,000 volunteering their time, knowledge and expertise every year. The ABN AMRO collective labour agreement specifies that employees are entitled to a week of volunteering leave a year. It’s how we encourage everyone to give back to society.
In 2016 our Foundation organised 409 volunteer projects, with ABN AMRO employees volunteering on 12,747 occasions. Offering anything from coaching of budding entrepreneurs to help with reading and arithmetic at primary schools.
Four members, one of them independent, serve on the ABN AMRO Foundation board. The board sets ABN AMRO Foundation’s strategy and policies, while also supervising its finances and the implementation of its annual plan.
The Foundation is headed up by a director in charge of its daily affairs and its activities are carried out by twelve ABN AMRO staff. Director and staff meet the board at least three times a year to report on progress in terms of the annual plan and financial affairs.
The board is not remunerated, but may claim expenses they incur in the course of their duties.
