Every year Consileon Business Consultancy decides to donate the money for Christmas presents to charities instead. Because nobody really needs a third funky bottle opener or the fifth cool coffee can – instead, numerous needy people are sincerely and heartily happy about our financial contribution.
As a mid-sized consulting company, we have a social responsibility. Not only for our nearly 500 employees. But also for others who are less privileged and less secure and who are in need of support, especially in times of Corona after-effects, energy price crisis and inflation. We also support registered associations that foster networking, connections and collaboration worldwide.
We made a donation to the following organizations in 2022:
- Karlsruher Tafel e. V. (www.karlsruher-tafel.de)
The Tafel supports people who live on the edge of the subsistence minimum and therefore cannot feed themselves sufficiently. These can be single parents, low-income families, pensioners and other people in need. We also supply social institutions such as day centers, overnight shelters, counseling centers and charitable organizations. Find out more in an interview with Joachim Ruf, board member of Karlsruher Tafel: Fewer and fewer goods, more and more people in need
- HEIDI – Förderverein für krebskranke Kinder e.V. Wolfsburg (https://www.heidi-wolfsburg.de/)
Every year, about 1,600 children in Germany are diagnosed with cancer. For the young patients and their families this is an extreme stress test. The association was founded in 1990 and wants to support the care of children with cancer.
- Seniorenhilfe LichtBlick e. V. (https://seniorenhilfe-lichtblick.de/)
As the first association of its kind, LichtBlick e. V. helps more than 20,000 needy seniors whose pensions are not enough to live upon despite decades of work. Financial support is provided for necessary purchases. Clothing. A new bed. A functioning refrigerator. And the most important: food. Read an interview with the LichtBlick founder about the current situation and her motivation here: Fighting old-age poverty – Consileon supports LichtBlick Seniorenhilfe e.V.
- ARCHE Karlsruhe e. V. (https://www.archekarlsruhe.de/)
Every child deserves a good future. However, not all children have the same starting conditions. Due to their background or family situation, children have different opportunities. Therefore, the ARCHE team particularly accompanies children who grow up in emotional or financial hardship, so that they have hope for a good future. An interview about the work and role of the association with the ARCHE public relations officer Katharina Große can be found here: Providing opportunities for children: Consileon supports ARCHE e.V.
