The Alstom Corporate Foundation has announced its final selection of projects for the 2020 cycle. With a total of 167 projects having been submitted, Alstom employees have once again demonstrated their enthusiasm for philanthropy and for supporting local communities.
I am impressed with the level of engagement that my Alstom colleagues are demonstrating! This year, the Foundation will exceptionally have a budget of €1.9 million, a new increase versus last year, to better support communities suffering from the Covid-19 fallout. This is important: populations have been strongly impacted these past months due to economic difficulties, while ONGs have had trouble raising funds for their projects during this period” says Anne-Cecile Barbier, Secretary General of the Alstom Foundation.
This year, the Foundation’s Board has selected 29 projects for funding from its 2020/21 budget – an increase on the 25 projects funded last year.
