Going beyond business

At ifss we are committed to making a contribution to the community and to society. We organize and participate in yearly charitable events, and sometimes complete consulting projects and trainings on a pro bono basis.

This space is dedicated to news and information related to CSR (corporate social responsibilty) activities and other initatives.

ifss Charity Event 2016

This year´s team event took place at the grounds of the Viennese Baseball Club Homerunners. Again, the aim was doing sports together, having a good time and contributing to something greater by producing an incredible number of „points“ and „homeruns“ . The ifss team effort got “converted” into a 3700 Euro donation. For the third time in a row, the beneficiary is ”Die Möwe“. This organisation helps children who are victims of violence. With the raised amount of money one child can receive therapy treatments for approx. 1,5 years.

Run for Diabetes and Stroke 2014

An intense client relationship was intensified when an ifss  team  of 5 participate in the run for diabetes and  stroke,  a special 3 km run at the Boehringer Ingelheim premises in Ingelheim on November  11th 2014. This run was joined by 467 persons. The Boehringer  management converted the kilometers run by each participant during this event into a sponsorship for the World Stroke Organization & the IDF’s “Life for a Child” campaign. Each of the two organisations received a donation of 15.000 Euro.

“Life for a Child” helps to provide children in the developing world with life-saving clinical care and diabetes education. Learn more about the program here IDF website.
