Citi’s 9th annual e for education campaign will run from 7 September to 29 October. During this time, Citi will donate a percentage of proceeds to education-focused non-profit organisations that help to tackle childhood mental health issues, illiteracy and improve access to quality education.

This is the fourth year that Citi has chosen Place2Be as one of the charities to benefit from e for education. Last year’s campaign raised a record $9.4 million for non-profits around the world.

Since its launch in 2013, the e for education initiative has raised $47 million for education-focused non-profit organisations, reaching over 500 schools and 600,000 students.

Carey Lathrop, Co-Head of Markets at Citi, said:

“Providing education to young people across the globe is essential to ensuring shared future prosperity and ending the cycle of poverty,”

“Citi’s e for education is helping make a difference as we work together with our clients and non-profit partners to inspire hope and help build a better and more equitable future for society’s next generation.”

Catherine Roche, Chief Executive of Place2Be, said:

“The importance of children’s mental health has certainly come to the fore in the last year and throughout the pandemic, at Place2Be we have adapted and advanced our school provision, parenting support and teacher training programmes in response."

Citi continues to be an invaluable partner and with the truly incredible support of their e for education programme, Place2Be continues to rise to the challenge of creating more mentally healthy school environments, ensuring better learning outcomes for all pupils.
