Acting through our corporate charity foundation, Citi engages in philanthropy throughout the world, providing support for those in need.

Citi, a company with a 200-year tradition of volunteerism, actively supports the volunteer initiatives of its employees. Since 2006 in more than 100 countries worldwide, including in Russia, Citi Global Community Day was held for the first time. The success of this endeavor and the joy Citi employees experienced from participating in such an international initiative led the company to decide to make Global Community Day an annual event.
Each year employees of the Citi Russia from 11 cities join their colleagues from around the world and participate in this day celebrating volunteerism, helping both the young and the elderly, homeless animals and also organizing environmental initiatives.
Furthermore, in each city where the bank has a presence, employees have social organizations to which they provide assistance throughout the year.
