Black Tie International: Credit Suisse

Credit Suisse Hosts Inaugural Philanthropy Campus in Collaboration with the New York University School of
 Continuing and Professional Studies

The Bank's ultra-high net worth private banking clients
from across the world to be schooled in a wide range of topics related to philanthropic planning


NEW YORK [September 14, 2011]  - Credit Suisse announced today that it will hold its inaugural Philanthropy Campus, a series of classroom sessions for its ultra-high net worth clients, September 20 - 23, 2011. The global program is in collaboration with the George H. Heyman Center for Philanthropy and Fundraising at the New York University School of Continuing and Professional Studies (NYU-SCPS), and will take place at NYU's Helen and Martin Kimmel Center for University Life.

The Credit Suisse Philanthropy Campus is designed to equip the Bank's Private Banking clients from around the world with the knowledge and the tools necessary to advance an existing philanthropic endeavor or begin a new one. The curriculum will address the most pressing issues facing today's philanthropists, including ethical behavior, technology, strategic goal-setting, accountability, and changing regulations that affect traditional giving as well as social investing.

"NYU-SCPS has one of the leading educational programs in philanthropy, and we are honored to collaborate with them on this global Philanthropy Campus," said Bill Woodson, head of Credit Suisse Family Wealth Management. "The most lasting changes often begin with the actions of a single individual or family, which is why we constantly work with our partners to develop new ways to help our clients achieve their philanthropic goals."

"Philanthropy and fundraising are critical to the way civil society functions in the United States," said Naomi Levine, founder and executive director of the Heyman Center. "Other countries across the globe are beginning to recognize the importance of philanthropy and the relevance of the American model to their own increasing needs for non-government support. We salute Credit Suisse for recognizing the importance of philanthropy and for providing an intensive education in every aspect of this field so that their clients can maximize the impact of their generosity."

An impressive list of keynote speakers include: John Sexton, president of New York University; Evelyn H. Lauder, founder and chairman of the Breast Cancer Research Foundation; The Right Honorable Sir John Major, KG, CH, former prime minister of the United Kingdom and senior advisor to Credit Suisse; Jeff Raikes, CEO of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation; Peter Buffett, Emmy Award-winning musician and philanthropist; and Ronald Bruder, founder of the Education For Employment Foundation, as well as New York University faculty members and philanthropic experts.

To complement its comprehensive agenda, the Philanthropy Campus will feature private visits to world-renowned institutions in New York, including the Rubin Museum of Art featuring the New York Philharmonic, of which Credit Suisse is the Exclusive Global Sponsor, and Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center?s Evelyn H. Lauder Breast Center.

"We believe that the existence of a sound and stable social environment is key to the long-term success of our business," said Anthony DeChellis, head of Credit Suisse's Private Banking business in the Americas. "This is one reason we have a longstanding commitment to social responsibility."

Corporate Responsibility

At Credit Suisse, we believe that our responsible approach to business is a decisive factor determining the long-term success of our bank. We therefore strive to act as a good corporate citizen in every aspect of our work. This approach is founded on a broad understanding of our duties as a financial services provider and our responsibilities toward society and the environment, as well as our role as an employer.
