Malala Fund is working for a world where every girl can learn and lead.

Today, Citi launched their ninth annual e for education Campaign, a corporate fundraising initiative that helps raise awareness and funds for nonprofits addressing childhood illiteracy and improving access to quality education. Malala Fund is one of 13 organisations the campaign supports.

Since launching in 2013, e for education has raised over $47 million to improve education outcomes for more than 758,000 children around the world. During the campaign, Citi donates a percentage of the proceeds traded on their electronic platforms. In 2020, the campaign raised a record $9.4 million for ten organisations, including Malala Fund.

“We are so grateful to Citi for including Malala Fund in the e for education campaign for the fourth year,” says Lena Alfi, Chief Development Officer at Malala Fund. “Through this partnership, Citi has invested millions of dollars in Malala Fund’s Education Champions and COVID-19 response, helping us break down barriers to girls’ learning.”

In addition to the donations raised through Citi’s electronic trading activity over the next two months, Citi clients and employees also support their nonprofit partners through various educational and professional development activities. Nonprofits can engage with Citi and their clients through interviews, Q&As and fireside chats to share information about their work.
