Political Contributions and Activities

          It is a fundamental policy of the Bank that the Bank assets or resources may not be used to contribute to any political candidate or party anywhere in the world.

  • An exception to the above exists only in cases where such support is permitted by law and advocates democracy in general.
  • The Bank policy does not permit the use of any the Bank facilities or resources by employees for political campaigning, fundraising, or partisan political purposes.
  • The Bank prohibits all management and employees from directing or persuading, by any means, the Bank employees and subordinates to participate in any type of political activity.

          ​A decision by an employee to contribute any personal time, money, or other resources to a political campaign or activity must be made totally on the employee’s own discretion.​
