NEW YORK, May 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Neuberger Berman Group LLC, one of the world's leading employee-controlled investment managers, concluded its annual "Celebration with Service" program having notched its highest ever number of volunteers, service hours and global projects. The community service initiative in late April and early May included more than 1,160 Neuberger Berman volunteers devoting over 3,200 hours from 90+ projects globally in cities including Boston, New York, Chicago, Dallas, Wilmington, Del., London, Los Angeles, Hong Kong, Singapore, Shanghai, Taipei and Tokyo.
Celebration with Service is a key component of Neuberger Berman's signature philanthropic program, NB Impacts, which brings together all the resources of the firm—employee engagement, employee leadership and financial contributions—to meet critical community needs. Over the past three years, NB Impacts has engaged more than 4,500 volunteers globally who have worked with more than 5,000 youth, reached 800 seniors and spent nearly 2,000 hours sprucing up parks and community spaces. The Neuberger Berman Foundation, a cornerstone of NB Impacts, makes grants in support of organizations that provide academic enrichment, job readiness and college preparedness programs for at-risk children and youth.
Of the more than 90 projects occurring globally this year, select highlights include:
- This year's marquee event featured Neuberger Berman volunteers working alongside local youth, through New York Cares, to beautify and revitalize the Bronx River Community Center at the New York City Housing Authority's Bronx River Houses.
