VP Bank and VP Fund Solutions donate to charitable foundations in Luxembourg
VP Bank Group is committed to fulfilling its social and ecological responsibility towards society at all of its locations. Recently, donations were handed over to two charitable foundations in Luxembourg.
The "Fondation Hëllef fir d'Natur" received a donation from VP Bank (Luxembourg) SA and VP Fund Solutions (Luxembourg) SA in mid-May 2022. The purchase and maintenance of nature conservation areas, information and awareness campaigns for the protection of nature and biodiversity, scientific work, the protection of forests as well as the implementation of national, interregional and European projects for the protection of nature are important fields of activity of the Foundation. Donations give it the financial means to implement these projects. The cheque in the amount of EUR 4,500 was handed over by Claus Jørgensen, CEO of VP Bank (Luxembourg) SA, and Torsten Ries, CEO VP Fund Solutions (Luxembourg) SA, to Carine Pütz and Nicolas Hormain of the Fondation Hëllef fir d'Natur.

Its multidisciplinary team provides individual support from diagnosis to the child's cure, offering administrative and financial services, psychological and social support, as well as educational and recreational activities. In addition, the Foundation conducts educational campaigns, participates in improving the condition of sick children and actively supports oncopaediatric research. Claus Jørgensen and Torsten Ries presented a cheque for EUR 5,000 to Pierre Dochen from the Fondatioun Kriibskrank Kanner.
