Equity Through Education: Helping deserving students on their path to success
For the 19th year in a row, BMO has supported diversity within education with the annual Equity through Education Trading Day. On September 20, all North American and European institutional equity trading commissions earned by BMO Capital Markets went to supporting organizations and scholarships that help and support deserving students on their path to success.
This year, BMO Capital Markets raised C$1.65 million, for the following organizations:
- Children’s Aid Foundation of Canada
- Financial Women’s Association
- Imperial College London
- The Jackie Robinson Foundation
- Loran Scholars Foundation
- Lime Connect
- Women in Capital Markets Return to Bay Street program
- The Brokerage UK
The BMO Capital Markets NYC Scholarship Program is also one of the supported organizations, which works with graduating students of selected New York secondary schools who are interested in financial services. In addition to receiving financial support for their tuition, scholarship recipients are also provided internships with BMO in New York during their college program.
“Since inception, Equity Through Education has donated almost $32 million to help over 5,000 students across North America and the U.K. This is a program we are very proud of, not only does it demonstrate our purpose, but it helps us make progress towards our commitment to zero barriers to inclusion and it creates opportunities for future leaders.”
