HSBC became a corporate partner of Horizons National in 2016, with a grant to help support our expansion efforts in several key areas of the country including Chicago and New York City. Since that time, our partnership has continued to deepen and grow, most recently with emergency support for our Network during the twin pandemics of racism and COVID in 2020. Mark Steffensen is Senior Executive Vice President and General Counsel at HSBC and joined Horizons National’s Board of Directors in 2019. Mark feels that HSBC and Horizons National have a shared culture:
At HSBC, we encourage our employees to ‘bring their whole self to work’. At Horizons, I’ve witnessed first-hand the power of embracing and educating the ‘whole-child,’ and why 83 percent of students reported feeling connected to an adult who cares about them.
Transformational support from HSBC has allowed Horizons National to expand exponentially in the past five years, bringing Horizons to more students and families. Read more about our partnership with HSBC here.
