ABN AMRO Support for India Foundation

It was back in 1985 when ABN AMRO first started supporting organisations in India that provide shelter, education and health care for young street children. The bank has set up the Support for India foundation to offer both financial and non-financial support.

Strong sense of commitment towards Indian society

ABN AMRO’s ties with India are strong. Indian IT and Operations partners are closely involved in our daily efforts to improve our services and to design and manage our IT systems. This has given ABN AMRO a strong sense of commitment towards Indian society and the well-being of Indian street children, many of whom are left to fend for themselves.

A better future for disadvantaged people in India

The Support for India foundation, with input from our Indian IT and Operations partners, has selected various foundations to support in India: one in each state where ABN AMRO is represented through our partners. Each of the foundations selected helps disadvantaged communities and street children by providing shelter, healthcare, education and rehabilitation and by helping them find jobs and pursue careers.

Committed ABN AMRO employees

Many of ABN AMRO’s employees donate to Support for India or volunteer for the organisation through fundraising. For example, we have seen a stair-climbing fundraiser at ABN AMRO's head office, sponsor initiatives by a number of different departments and an online auction where employees of ABN AMRO, subsidiaries and partners can buy and sell items and services. The separate foundations use the money raised by ABN AMRO to invest in buildings, schools and equipment. The board of Support for India is made up of ABN AMRO employees and is chaired by Christian Bornfeld of ABN AMRO’s Executive Board.
