Educational Institutions

Whether you're a small primary school or a large, nationally recognized university, our team of experts understands your unique needs. For more than 50 years, BMO Harris Bank has provided banking services to a wide range of educational institutions, from prominent private and not-for-profit educational institutions. We also have expertise in serving public school districts.

Reliable access to capital is critical to your operations, particularly for financing expansion. Our credit facilities, such as letters of credit and standby bond purchase agreements, are backed by BMO Harris Bank's strong balance sheet and high credit rating. And through BMO Capital Markets, we provide access to underwriting and financial advisory services.

We know that for private institutions, satisfying your commitments to your benefactors is as important as financing your educational mission. With our institutional trust services tailored specifically to the not-for-profit community, we provide management of charitable remainder trusts and endowment custody services.

Our expertise in serving government agencies means we're well-versed in the needs of public school districts, and we offer solutions tailored specifically for you, such as equipment leasing and financing programs. For day-to-day cash management, our treasury management solutions are designed to help both public and private institutions streamline the payables and receivables processes. And while we offer the comprehensive services you expect from a large bank, our bankers have the ability to make timely decisions in your local market, and we work with you to build tailored solutions that help you achieve your goals.

With our long-standing, consistent commitment to working with educational institutions, breadth of services, and experienced bankers dedicated to your industry, BMO Harris Bank is your single banking resource.
