All the best for 2021

The entire vdp team wishes you a happy new year and all the best, especially health, of course. May 2021 be less turbulent, more optimistic, more carefree - simply better - than its predecessor.  We look forward to continuing to work with you and to meeting you face to face, which we hope will soon be possible again.

vdp expands its social commitment

It has always been a matter of importance to the Association of German Pfandbrief Banks (vdp) to assume social responsibility and to make a yearly Christmas donation for people in need of support.

This year the money will go to not one but two Berlin organizations: a project that supports young people and a project for the homeless, who are particularly vulnerable during the cold winter months.

“Through the dedicated work of these organizations, our money will go to two very worthy causes and reach those who are urgently in need of help,” explained vdp’s Chief Executive Jens Tolckmitt.

In addition to the vdp’s traditional Christmas donation, the Association has this year launched a second campaign for the benefit of others: the “Christmas Wish Tree”. At the heart of this campaign lies personal financial support that comes from the vdp’s staff members. The idea here is that they fulfil the Christmas wishes of children who are sick, have suffered bad experiences or come from a difficult family background. For these boys and girls, it is anything but certain that they will receive the Christmas gifts they wish for.

“We are delighted that, through our support, the children can have an even happier Christmas,” the vdp’s Head of Communications Carsten Dickhut remarked.
