EQT Foundation Update April 2022

EQT Foundation is pleased to share some updates from the last quarter.

Employee fundraising in support of Ukraine

EQT Foundation has been facilitating and coordinating EQT’s fundraising efforts to support the people in Ukraine, channeled through a selection of organizations providing humanitarian relief. The focus of the fundraise has been to support established organizations with local presence in Ukraine, building on EQT’s 'local with locals' approach and covering four of the main humanitarian challenges: medical supplies and aid, refugees, children and protection of free speech and independent journalism.

The organizations selected as part of the fundraising was:

  • Doctors without Borders
  • UNCHR and NRC
  • Save the Children
  • Reports without Borders

The fundraising allowed EQT employees to choose which challenge they felt the most passionate about and the EQT Foundation matched every donation, doubling the effect of their giving. So far, the fundraiser has mobilized over EUR 700k, with donations flowing in from offices from San Francisco to Sydney.
