About the Program

Philanthropy is an opportunity to transform personal beliefs and values into action.

BMO has worked in collaboration with National Philanthropic Trust (NPT) to establish a donor-advised fund program, the BMO Charitable Fund Program. The BMO Charitable Fund Program is administered and sponsored by NPT, a 501(c)(3) independently operated public charity serving a national constituency.

A donation under the BMO Charitable Fund Program to create a donor-advised fund (DAF) is considered an outright gift that qualifies for an immediate income tax deduction. You can create a donor-advised fund now and reap the tax benefits in the current calendar year (subject to certain limitations), while putting off until a later date the specific charitable gift recommendations.
