At Lombard International Group, Corporate Citizenship is our approach to ensuring we have a positive impact in the communities in which we work and operate across the globe. We care about making a meaningful difference today, to safeguard a sustainable future for our colleagues, our clients, our partners, the environment and society of tomorrow. We are guided by our values and motivated by the footprint that we leave behind.
Our donations, charitable partnerships and volunteering initiatives across Europe and in the US are aimed to continue to drive positive environmental impact, social awareness and community prosperity. Our people are at the heart of our endeavours that help to make a real difference, they proactively give back and get involved in their local communities by organising company-wide fundraising campaigns, participating in charitable events and donating their time, money and skills to causes close to their hearts.
Here is a snapshot of our Citizenship programming around the world:
Helping to provide access to education to support the positive evolution of our society and prepare the youth of today for the workplace of tomorrow.
Community Partnership School | Philadelphia, US
The Community Partnership School (CPS) aims to help improve the lives of children in North Central Philadelphia. Founded in 2006, CPS is an innovative, independent elementary school, dedicated to providing an affordable, high-quality education to children from low-income backgrounds. Volunteers from our US office annually participate in the Philadelphia Half-Marathon and the Rothman 8k to help fundraise for the school. As part of the school’s Lunch Buddies Program, every Friday, volunteers assist the CPS teachers during each grade’s lunch period to promote positive dialogue and nurture meaningful relationships between students and adults.
We are particularly proud of launching a summer internship program for CPS alumni. This program is designed to help expose students to an office environment while gaining useful knowledge on time management.

Wild@Life | Germany
We are proud to partner with the Wild@Life e.V. Foundation to support their incredible conservation projects to protect the African lions of Chizarira National Park in Zimbabwe. By collaring wild lions, the Foundation is able to monitor the lion’s natural population and the movements of the prides. This project is vital in providing conservationists with the data they need to protect the species in the fight against human wildlife conflict.
In recognition of our partnership with the Wild@life e.V, Aslihan Gedik, the Foundation’s founder, named a young lioness with two cubs Asli. It is an honour to have Asli as our Lombard International Lion and we are thrilled to be supporting this noble mission.
