BOSTON, Dec. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- BNY Mellon, the global leader in investment management and investment services, and its employees donated more than $3 million and 3,000 hours of volunteer service to Boston-area nonprofits during 2012.
With BNY Mellon's support, its community partners continued to drive positive change in 2012 and helped their populations stay connected to critical programs and services – from providing coats to children who need them and computer and office skills training for job-seekers, to providing career development programs and nutritious meals for low-income and vulnerable women.
BNY Mellon's philanthropic focus on Powering Potential helps people in need by concentrating on basic needs and workforce development opportunities. Through the program, BNY Mellon supports programs and initiatives that make local communities better places to live and work, particularly by targeting organizations that provide food, clothing, energy and housing assistance to those who need immediate help, and improve access to employment through job training and skills development.
"We are focused on building strong, lasting community partnerships, and our charitable giving program reflects our brand of philanthropy," said Joanne Jaxtimer, Regional Executive of New England for BNY Mellon. "We are committed to identifying good partners and providing them with the financial and technical investment they need to move forward with their work and meet their organizational goals."For 2012, grants focused on workforce development and basic needs included the following:
- Operation Warm - $50,000 in support of the "Boston Coat Program," which will provide 2,500 winter coats to children from low-income households.
