BMO announces relief measures for COVID-19
During this time of uncertainty, we want you to know that we are here to support you and our communities as we all come together to help keep one another safe and healthy.
BMO Harris has pledged up to $500,000 to support crisis relief efforts in areas of immediate community need as a result of COVID-19. This commitment includes:
- $250,000 to the Chicago Community COVID-19 Response Fund
- $100,000 to United Way of Greater Milwaukee & Waukesha County’s COVID-19 Urgent Needs Fund
- $50,000 to United Way of Dane County’s COVID-19 Emergency and Recovery Fund
- Additional support for non-profits and community groups
These donations are made in addition to the $10 million donation BMO announced last fall through the United Way of Metro Chicago’s Neighborhood Network to support Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s INVEST South/West Program, which was created to tackle economic disparity in the city.
