Each year, BMO Capital Markets employees across North America participate in the BMO Employee Giving campaign. Through the campaign, which is run in conjunction with all of BMO Financial Group's lines of businesses, employees are given the opportunity to make a donation to their local United Way or another charity of their choice.
Supporting the communities in which we live and work is an important part of BMO's corporate responsibility platform. In North America BMO partners with United Way because it works to solve immediate issues in our communities and also researches root causes to prevent future problems.
BMO Capital Markets employees are not only generous in their financial contributions; they are also generous with their time. More than 230 of our employees volunteer regularly with charitable and not-for-profit organizations in their communities, with more than half being board positions.
