Building Strong Communities
We’re helping to build strong communities by becoming a bigger part of yours.
At the heart of a community are the people who live and work there. At BMO Harris Bank, we are committed to building strong communities by supporting the people and businesses who call those communities home.
We fulfill our commitment through philanthropic donations, local sponsorships, employee volunteerism, financial literacy outreach, community development investments and community development lending.
We work side-by-side with local residents and organizations to nurture neighborhoods, and are excited about continued possibilities for growing and revitalizing areas that have promise and potential.
Making an impact
As part of a city-wide collaborative effort, BMO Harris engaged a variety of community-based organizations and Chicagoans ― everyone from cops to kids ― in painting a “Mural Mosaic” depicting the city and highlights like Buckingham Fountain, the Blackhawks and Bulls, and BMO Harris Bank’s own Hubert The Lion.
BMO Harris recently opened the doors of a new branch located at 8300 South Holland Road in Chicago’s Chatham community. Our branch team is working hard to make a big impact in the community through a number of exciting outreach initiatives.
Mr. Aung “Sunny” Lat is proud of his house. With its neatly trimmed lawn, plants hanging on the porch and American flag waving from the corner of the garage, this house recently became Sunny’s home — thanks to help from BMO Harris Bank and ACTS Housing.
The foundation of a healthy community is the sense of pride and ownership of the people who live and work there. Supporting home ownership is one of the ways that BMO Harris contributes to the strength of our communities.
We've built our business around exceptional service and relationship banking, as well as a commitment to building stronger communities by working side by side with the people and businesses who call those communities home.
