Community Development

The Citi Foundation works to promote economic progress and improve the lives of people in low-income communities around the world. The "More than Philanthropy" approach leverages the enormous expertise of Citi and its people to fulfill our mission and drive thought leadership and innovation.

With the support of Citi Foundation, Citi Australia partners with non-profit organisations to give young people a positive experience when transitioning to work or further education. We support programs that address skills gaps and employability outcomes. We invest in community partners to test new means of connecting disadvantaged young people with jobs and then building sustainable programs which can be scaled. The programs in this focus area make up our Pathways to Progress initiative.

Employees in the community


Citi employees have always been actively involved in the community and Citi facilitates this through its well-established volunteering and workplace giving programs.

Global Community Day - Citi employees volunteer year-round, and the establishment of Global Community Day in 2006 has provided an annual opportunity for tens of thousands of Citi employees, along with their families and friends, to come together as a global volunteer team to use their time, skills and expertise to make a difference in their cities. Global Community Day is one of the many ways Citi shows its commitment to the communities where we have a presence. In addition to Global Community, Citi offers employees one day of paid volunteer leave to support a charity they are passionate about or participate in a volunteer program with a Citi Foundation grant recipient.

The Citi Workplace Giving program allows employees to make regular pre-tax payroll donations via Good2Give to a range of Australian charities.

Citi employees are also encouraged to support our community partners through volunteering with many community mentoring programs operating throughout the year
