The work of the Aberdeen Asset Management Charitable Foundation is focused on two main areas - emerging markets and local communities. This reflects our ambition to give back to those areas which are a key strategic focus of the business and to build on the historic pattern of giving to communities in which Aberdeen employees live and work.
The Foundation is managed by a Board, chaired by Claire Drummond, Aberdeen’s Head of Charitable Giving, and comprised of a representative head from each region in addition to an independent director.
Overseen by the regional directors, each of our global offices has the autonomy to apply the Foundation’s strategy within strict guidelines, ensuring employee engagement, clear community benefit and long term support.
The Foundation seeks partnerships with smaller charities around the world, where funds can be seen to have a meaningful and measurable impact and we encourage employees to use their time and skills to support our charitable projects.
