Today, Skills to Succeed is a singular, globally integrated initiative, and its momentum continues to build with distinct programs across our geographies, in both mature and emerging markets, from Canada to Germany and Haiti to Vietnam. As a result, in collaboration with global and local nonprofit organizations that share our passion for building skills, our pro bono, volunteering and grant-making efforts are making a sustainable difference to the long-term economic vitality and resilience of individuals, families and communities around the world.
Accenture has a long history of community involvement and we have successful partnerships with nonprofit organizations across the globe. Our challenge is to evolve these important relationships so they support skills development. While it will take some time to achieve that, we will continue to mobilize our efforts to increase the impact of Skills to Succeed. In our last corporate citizenship report, we stated that we expected to have 80 percent of our overall corporate citizenship activities aligned with Skills to Succeed by the end of fiscal 2010—and we achieved that goal during fiscal 2011.
We also announced that Accenture and the Accenture Foundations will contribute more than US$100 million by the end of 2013 in global and local giving, as well as pro bono contributions of time and Accenture employee skills to support our corporate citizenship efforts.
In fact, in fiscal 2011, Accenture and the Accenture Foundations contributed cash and in-kind support, such as business consulting services and sponsoring our people to volunteer their time, equivalent to US$44.5 million.
