Fallen Patriots is so grateful for the Holiday Charity Initiative launched by Credit Suisse. With over 4,900 employee donations, the initiative raised over $1.8 million thanks to Credit Suisse’s foundation matching the funds. Forty-three charities participated and were ranked by most donations and most donors. Fallen Patriots ranked an exceptional second place in both categories. The money raised will send military children who’ve lost a parent in the line duty to college.

The Holiday Charity Initiative is the annual employee giving campaign for Credit Suisse in the Americas. Corporate citizenship efforts at Credit Suisse are focused around three themes: volunteerism, education and micro finance.

The campaign was designed in the spirit of partnership that benefits all parties involved. As well as helping foundations like Fallen Patriots meet their funding goals, it offers Credit Suisse employees the opportunity to learn about, support, and be directly involved in the Bank’s philanthropic work and achievements.

Credit Suisse’s Holiday Charity Initiative will help the growing demands on Fallen Patriots to ensure access to education by college-bound children who have lost a parent in the line of duty.
