Societe Generale European Business Services launches ”We Care Together” financing program aimed at supporting projects developed by non-governmental and non-profit organizations in Romania and offering financial support worth a total of 200,000 Euro.
The first SG EBS funding program aims to support the initiatives created by NGOs in the fields of professional integration and education and comes as a natural continuation of the company’s commitment to have a positive impact on society and the environment by supporting vulnerable communities.
Through the We Care Together program, SG EBS hopes to boost creativity, performance and responsibility, but also to provide financial support for the implementation of actions that will shape a more inclusive future.
