Deutsche Bank Americas Foundation Grant
The 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 most grants are awarded, the Foundation supports nonprofit organizations that concentrate on community development, education, and the arts. Deutsche Bank works in partnership with local nonprofit organizations to provide distressed communities and disadvantaged individuals with opportunities for safe and affordable housing and economic advancement. The Foundation also seeks to enrich these communities by providing access to the arts, 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. Foundation staff will review all submissions and invite selected organizations to apply for funding. The Foundation will review these grant proposals on an ongoing basis. As a rule, the Foundation does not provide funding to any individual organization for more than three successive years. Grant seekers should send a letter of intent, not to exceed three pages, to the Foundation. This letter should provide a brief statement of the organization's history, mission and objectives, the purpose of the proposed project (goals/projected outcomes), the amount and duration of the financial request and a copy of the IRS determination letter.
