UBS has a strong tradition of volunteerism in Asia Pacific. In 2013, over 3,000 employees in the region volunteered almost 28,000 hours. Our employees in the region participate in activities such as matched-giving schemes, direct cash donations to selected organizations, employee volunteering, and disaster relief efforts. Beyond philanthropic contributions, we provide our partners with in-kind support such as skill-based volunteering, pro-bono assistance and donations of equipment and resources.
UBS has long term partnerships with 60 community groups across the region, with the aim of contributing to the well-being of these communities.
