BMO Nesbitt Burns To Donate All Institutional Equity Trading Commissions Earned May 11th to Charities that Support Education
TORONTO, May 3, 2005 – BMO Nesbitt Burns is proud to announce the launch of Equity through Education, a new charitable program designed to raise money for students who demonstrate academic promise but lack the support and means to pursue opportunities that can only be achieved through education.
On May 11th, all of the institutional equity trading commissions earned by BMO Nesbitt Burns across Canada will go directly to four important organizations, whose mission includes improving access to education and training for bright, deserving students who might not otherwise have the opportunity.
“The goodwill generated on May 11th will greatly underscore the personal and professional commitment we all feel toward the important causes of Education and Diversity,” said Eric Tripp, Vice Chair, BMO Nesbitt Burns and Campaign Chair of the special trading day.
“BMO Nesbitt Burns is honoured to assist the selected agencies in their collective efforts to improve lives, strengthen neighbourhoods and enable individuals to achieve their fullest potential through education,” he added.
The four charities BMO Nesbitt Burns’ Equity through Education program is supporting are:
“We are grateful to be receiving support from the BMO Nesbitt Burns’ Equity through Education program,” said Rachael Ross, President, NEADS. “This program will enable our organization to launch an exciting series of workshops across Canada for post-secondary students and graduates with disabilities.
