Stibbe Charity Weeks December 2018

07.12.2018 BE law

It is that time of the year again: the “Stibbe Charity Weeks” are organised in our Brussels and Luxembourg offices.

In the next two weeks, teams of our Brussels and Luxembourg offices are organizing fundraising events for charity. Everyone at Stibbe is invited to participate in fundraising activities for which the proceedings will be donated to different charities (Think Pink, Cliniclowns, Vacances pour tous, De katten-Brigade vzw, de straatverplegers/Infirmiers de rue, Kom op tegen Kanker, etc.). Just like the past years, we will also participate in the Warmathon in Brussels, organized by radio station Studio Brussels.

Stibbe matches all donations and sponsors initiatives by donating funds to charities supported by Stibbe. During the successful first edition in 2017, we were able to raise more than EUR 16,000 for different charities.

At Stibbe, we feel it is both our duty and our privilege to return something to the communities in which we operate. We feel a strong sense of responsibility for the development of a more sustainable society. That is why Stibbe sponsors cultural events, scientific pursuits and children in need. In Brussels, we are a partner of Toekomst-Atelier de l’Avenir.
