BMO Financial Group has a long tradition of community involvement, and BMO employees are deeply committed to the communities where we live and work.
BMO employees have been designating their annual pledges to charities of their choice since November 1, 2010. We're pleased to announce that employees raised a record $12.7 million in 2010 for local charities and United Ways across the country.
This year, employee giving at BMO has undergone a renewal and effective April 1, 2011, BMO Employee Charitable Foundation's holdings will have been fully disbursed and grant funding will no longer be available through the Foundation. This means that going forward, employees will continue to support local charities by designating their donations directly to the charity of their choice through our annual employee giving pledge campaign.
BMO Financial Group remains committed to community involvement and continues to support charitable initiatives through donations and sponsorship programs.
Organizations seeking funding support are encouraged to refer to our Donations and Sponsorships Application Guidelines.
