Events, Sponsoring and Social Commitment

In order to do good in the long term, we at INVERTO support a variety of social projects through sponsorship, donations and organize our own charity campaigns. In addition to sponsorships with the SOS Children’s Villages and donations for regional associations and institutions, we have been supporting sporting aid campaigns such as the Cologne Bridge Run for years.

Donations for flood victims

The devastating flood disaster in the Cologne area and in the Ahr valley shocks far beyond the affected regions. Many people want to help, and so do we! Within a few days, donations from our employees raised 11,250 euros, which we are now doubling to 22,500 euros. The total amount will be divided among various relief organizations.

SOS Kinderdörfer

Projects for disadvantaged children need support all year round, which is why we have been involved with SOS Children's Villages for over ten years. 60 of our employees have personally sponsored children in India and China. In addition to monetary gifts, these children can also look forward to receiving mail from Germany.

Fundraising campaign: Cologne Bridge Run

We took part in the Cologne Bridge Run for the 13th time. In bright sunshine and in high spirits, around 30 of our employees set off on the 15.5 km course. For each runner, we donated 200 euros to charitable organizations suggested by the runners in advance. After the run, a vote was held on the proposed initiatives over a Kölsch beer and a cool apple spritzer.

30,000 euros for Cologne organizations

How can fun, community and fundraising be brought together when all live events have to be cancelled? "Mulled wine meets charity. The idea behind it is relatively simple: employees offer activities that can be auctioned off by colleagues. The highest bidders do not pay for the activity, but donate the sum to a charity. The online event ultimately raised around 34,000 euros. Caritas for Corona, Kinderkrebshilfe Köln and Care4Cologne, a charity for the homeless, are delighted with our support.

INVERTO supports DKMS

"Mouths open against blood cancer" will be our motto for the second time in fall 2020. For every employee who registers, we cover the costs of analyzing and classifying the saliva sample. Around 60 of our employees have now registered with the DKMS. If the saliva sample is a match for a leukemia patient, stem cells are taken from the donor to help the patient overcome the blood cancer.

ENACTUS Cologne becomes National Champion 2020

The ENACTUS team at the University of Cologne has won this year's ENACTUS National Cup! The success was achieved with the two international projects SocialBnB and Save The Grain. Over the last few years we have played a major role in this remarkable development. In regular workshops, our colleagues teach the ENACTUS team, for example, successful project management or convincing presentation skills.
