Every year, BMO employees rally around local fundraisers and Walk so Kids Can Talk, a major fundraising event presented by BMO for Kids Help Phone, Canada’s only 24/7 national support service for youth. In 2019, 9,154 BMO employees, their family members and friends participated in the five-kilometre walk, raising $1.9 million.
A message from CEO of Kids Help Phone
Walk so Kids Can Talk is also a fun opportunity to engage our colleagues, families, friends and customers in support of Kids Help Phone.
The annual event focuses on raising awareness of the issues facing children and youth, and ensuring that hundreds of thousands of young people across the country continue to have access to the crucial counselling resources provided by Kids Help Phone. Every dollar we raise provides much needed help for a young person who turns to Kids Help Phone for life-changing – and sometimes even life-saving – help.
BMO Employees across North America support their communities through participation in an annual campaign to support United Way partners and other charitable organizations.
From BMO Volunteer Day each June to Days of Caring each Fall, our employees enthusiastically share their time and energy to help build healthy, sustainable communities.
