Other Initiatives

Blood Donation

Since March 2011, ICICI Foundation has given ICICI Bank employees the opportunity to save lives in the time it takes for a tea break. At the blood donation drive held at ICICI Bank corporate headquarters in Mumbai, employees were able to help bridge the gap between the nine million units of blood India requires every year and the seven million it collects.

The three-day blood donation drive drew an overwhelming response with donations from over 600 employees. Based on this success, ICICI Foundation scaled up the activity at other ICICI Group offices in the Mumbai metropolitan area. ICICI Foundation aims to organise the drives on a regular basis especially between May and August when most blood banks face shortages.

Blood donation provides an ideal platform for employee engagement and fulfills the community needs since it can be conducted at any location and requires only 15 minutes per donor.

Till date, around 4,000 employees have donated blood across 15 blood donation camps.

To make all employees aware that blood donation is a safe and worthwhile practice, in the weeks leading up to the drive, ICICI Foundation shares information to dispel common myths and explain the realities of donating – it’s safe, easy, and every donation can save three lives. ICICI Foundation’s partnership with the State Blood Transfusion Council (SBTC) ensures that every blood donation event meets the highest hygiene and comfort standards.

The blood donated by ICICI Bank’s employees goes to the SBTC’s premier blood bank, Sir JJ Mahanagar Raktapedhi, which provides safe blood at the lowest price in Mumbai. Sir JJ Mahanagar Raktapedhi works to make blood accessible to people from all socio-economic backgrounds and regularly provides blood for free to 150 children with thalessaemia and sickle cell anemia.

ICICI Foundation has been partnering with the State Blood Transfusion Council (SBTC) to organize blood donation drives at various ICICI Bank offices across Mumbai since 2011. The blood donated by ICICI Bank employees is sent to the SBTC’s premier blood bank – JJ Mahanagar Raktapedhi – which provides safe blood at the lowest price in Mumbai to people from all socio-economic backgrounds. Till date, more than 4,000 employees have participated in the donation camps organised at ICICI Bank offices. read more read more

ICICI Bank has partnered with GiveIndia since 2012 to provide all the bank employees and customers an opportunity to experience the ‘joy of giving’ by donating in a small way to meaningful and credible projects. The campaign has been conducted primarily across online platforms and also promoted through the ICICI Bank Facebook page and emailers to ICICI Bank employees.

The campaign has mobilised  5.3 million in 2012,  17.5 million in 2013 and  13.4 million in 2014. These amounts were donated to select NGOs working towards the cause of education for underprivileged children.
