At M&T Bank, we understand that healthy communities are the foundation of our continued success. That’s why M&T Bank—and our employees—take such active and engaged roles in our communities.
M&T works with not-for-profit organizations dedicated to increasing the quality of life and economic opportunities in the communities we serve. The bank supports organizations working on a wide variety of causes, with the leading areas being civic, arts, and human service causes.
Operating as a community bank, charitable activities and grants are decided by our local teams, who understand those communities best because that’s where they live and work.
In 2011, M&T Bank contributed approximately $17 million to hundreds of organizations across seven states and the District of Columbia. M&T Bank has donated more than $147 million to not-for-profit groups over the past decade.
M&T Bank has maintained strong support of our communities over the years—especially in tough economic times when that assistance is needed most.
Commitment to our communities goes beyond charitable grants. Our employees reported volunteering thousands of hours each month last year to ensure their friends and neighbors thrive.
M&T Bank has been recognized as one of the top charitable companies in the United States. And we earned an “outstanding” Community Reinvestment Act rating from the Federal Reserve Bank of New York in 2011. M&T Bank has earned the highest possible rating on each of its CRA exams since 1982.
