HSBC invests in educational programs that are sustainable and add value to our communities through our Community Investment department.
HSBC's Community Investment department focuses on projects and organizations that educate students aged 3-25, particularly those from disadvantaged backgrounds or for schools in economically deprived areas. HSBC provides Corporate Contributions that give young people hope, a positive attitude, opportunities for success, and a better future.
HSBC is proud of our signature partnership with Junior Achievement, the world's largest nonprofit organization dedicated to educating young people to value free enterprise, business and economics.
HSBC's Community Investment department also provides and supports financial education for adults and youth through the YourMoneyCounts® financial education platform in order to help people become more confident in managing their money and making more informed financial decisions.
The cornerstone of the platform is the Web site, YourMoneyCounts.com, which has experienced more than 4.4 million visits since 2003. The easy-to-use site has a wealth of information covering more than fifteen different topics in a straightforward, easy-to-understand manner, along with the popular, interactive calculators—all designed to help you manage your money, learn about saving, spending and borrowing. Visitors to YourMoneyCounts.com will find a commercial-free site, containing no marketing messages or product pitches.
