Indianapolis is full of smart organizations who understand that our community is only as strong as the people who are in it. That’s why we’re excited to highlight one of our greatest community supporters this week! Not only is BMO Harris Bank a truly generous co-presenting sponsor of our annual Education Celebration, but this year, they were named our 2016 Corporate Partner of the Year.

Founder & CEO, Sally Bindley, with 2016 Corporate Partner of the Year, BMO Harris Bank

BMO Harris Bank has been a supporter of School on Wheels for the past five years. In that period of time, they have not only provided financial support to our organization, but are actively involved with us on a volunteer level.

They provide us high level volunteer support on our Board of Directors and also involve other employees in creative volunteer efforts that truly impact our kids. Leading up to winter break this school year, BMO employees provided gifts of games to help keep our kids occupied while school was out. Last school year, their employees created Boredom-Beater kits to send home with the children in our program and keep them engaged over the winter break.

BMO Harris Bank provides full circle support for School on Wheels and our academic intervention programs for children experiencing homelessness. It’s because of supporters like BMO that we are able to equip the children we serve with the tools necessary to break the cycle of homelessness through education. 

Thanks to BMO for being a true leader in the community and making Indianapolis better through both funding and the direct actions of their amazing employees!
