€50,000 donated at BIL’s Associations Day
On Monday 5 December, BIL donated €50,000 to ten Luxembourg non-governmental organisations. This donation reflects the bank’s ongoing support for organisations that work tirelessly to improve the living conditions of vulnerable people in Luxembourg.
On its first Associations Day, BIL focused on health by inviting ten NGOs that strive to improve the quality of life of people suffering from illnesses or disabilities, and help them find employment. The NGOs presented their activities to BIL employees and at the end of the day, each association received a €5,000 cheque, totalling €50,000 in donations.
The NGOs are the following:
– Cancer Foundation www.cancer.lu
– Kriibskrank Kanner Foundation www.fondatioun.lu
– Fondation Autisme Luxembourg www.fal.lu
– Télévie www.televie.rtl.lu
– UNICEF https://www.unicef.lu
– ALAN – Maladies Rares Luxembourg www.alan.lu
– ELA Luxembourg www.ela-asso.lu
– Médecins du Monde www.medecinsdumonde.lu
– Île aux Clowns www.ileauxclowns.lu
– La Main Tendue www.lamaintendue.lu
– Guide dogs for the blind www.chienguide.org
Marcel Leyers, CEO of BIL, commented: “The work carried out by these organisations is remarkable. It is an honour for BIL to open its doors, to welcome them so we can learn more about their activities and support them financially.”
This Associations Day is part of the bank’s sustainable development strategy, which aims, in particular, to have a positive impact on the economy and local communities. Its focus on Luxembourg and support for local organisations are at the heart of its action. The bank and its employees are thus involved with numerous NGOs in the fields of education, health and the environment.
