Social impact and benefiting society

"Leave this world a little better than you found it“ (Robert Baden-Powell).

Corporate social responsibility is a core principle for Bank Gutmann expressed through its active engagement in various projects since 2002.

Haus Immanuel

Mother & Child Home in Vienna, CARITAS

The Haus Immanuel is a temporary home for mothers and their children who are homeless and have dysfunctional relationships. It is open to women of every nationality and religious faith. The carefully supervised families in small apartments are all integrated into a classic Viennese apartment building. A specially trained and experienced team of social workers accompany and support them through their average stay of one to two years in the mother & child home. Their aim is to encourage and help mothers to be independent and capable of organizing and planning their lives again.

(Bank Gutmann has been supporting this mother & child home since 2002.)

Children’s Homes

in Borszék/Romania and Hungary, SAINT FRANCIS FOUNDATION OF DEVA

More than 10 children between the ages of two and thirteen years live in the children’s home in Borszék. The basic intention is to give the children, each with an individual past, a better and safer home to live in. They should feel comfortable, be able to laugh again and experience new joys. The St. Francis Foundation was established in 1993 in order to provide help to children in social and financial difficulties. Providing for the children’s basic needs, their mental and social development, as well as ethical and educational training, and ensuring their protection are the foundation’s most important priorities.

CliniClowns

Visits in hospitals to severely sick children and adults

Through their weekly or bi-monthly hospital visits, the Cliniclowns bring a bit auf joy and humor into the lives of severely sick children, adults and geriatric patients. It helps them to be distracted from their pain and to forget their mental suffering for at least a short while. They are not the usual clown entertainer but rather professionally trained clowns for the healthcare sector. They include social workers, independent artists, educators and therapists. The so-called “clown-therapy” represents an innovative additional aspect to conventional medicine, which can help foster the healing process. The objective is to visit the patients regularly and to laugh together.

(Bank Gutmann has been supporting this organization for over fifteen years.)
