The Foundation’s bank account – Citibank Europe plc


The AmCham Foundation’s aim is to create opportunity in Hungary to enhance the development of ethical business conduct through the charity activities of both the foreign and the Hungarian-owned companies and entrepreneurs.

How do donation happen?

  • Announcing annual tenders with specific purposes for institutions and organizations registered in Hungary. Independent experts evaluate the applications objectively. The winners are announced and presented on Thanksgiving Day.
  • Identifying needs and providing quick support in case of unexpected natural disasters.
  • Organizing Corporate Volunteer Programs at pre-selected institutions and organizations for AmCham members and employees.


The AmCham Foundation supports only institutions registered in Hungary in favor of those who have at least one year experience and are registered with the court.

What applicants can expect?
With the help of the donatrors, the AmCham Foundation offers a non-repayable financial and/or material support, as well as manual labor. The maximum amount an applicant can win is determined.
For those institutions that do not win support, we provide further opportunity by sending their tenders to our partner institutions, in case they agree in advance in writing.
