• ERSTE Stiftung & goodbee sind wieder an Board

    Wir freuen uns ganz besonders, die ERSTE Stiftung und goodbee wieder als sFörderer an Board des Social Impact Award begrüßen zu dürfen. Sie werden den Wettbewerb in Österreich und seine Expansion nach Rumänien unterstützen.

    Die ERSTE Stiftung…:
    ERSTE Foundation is active in the Central and South Eastern European region. Together with its partners, it creates a hive of activity for common good. Founded in 2003 it began its work two years later by developing its three programmes Social Development, Culture and Europe. ERSTE Foundation is the legal successor of the 190-year-old “Erste oesterreichische Spar-Casse”, the first Austrian savings bank. Its two commitments are based on these historical roots: as the major shareholder ERSTE Foundation safeguards the future of Erste Group as an independent company and invests its dividend to support the common good. This makes ERSTE Foundation a unique institution of this kind and size in Central and South Eastern Europe.

    …und goodbee:
    We go back a long way. The first legal predecessor of the ERSTE Foundation and the Erste Group Bank AG was established in Vienna on October 4th 1819, as “DIE ERSTE Oesterreichische Spar-Casse” (the first Austrian savings bank). This privately funded venture offered simple financial services (savings and loans) to a growing population of craftsmen and industry-employed workers.
    Back then, this emerging middle class did not have access to banking services, which were available mainly to the rich and privileged. The Spar-Casse was a rather innovative concept: founded without a profit-seeking motive, headed by a priest and supported by volunteers, it offered “ordinary” people a bit more financial safety in their daily lives.
