Community Partnership Campaign
Through our global Community Partnership program, we partner with nonprofits to improve the social and economic conditions where we do business and where our employees live and work. Community Partnership combines charitable grants, sponsorships and the dedicated involvement of our employees to make a positive difference in our communities around the world.
The Community Partnership Campaign is part of the company's Community Partnership program, where employees are encouraged to volunteer with and contribute to a wide range of organizations and receive company matching contributions and time off for their efforts.
World Food Day
A focus of the 2013 Community Partnership Campaign is food security and waste, and it includes a series of nearly 100 employee volunteer events that will be held around the world before, during and after World Food Day on October 16. In 2012, BNY Mellon and its employees contributed more than $1.2 million, the equivalent of 6 million meals to food related charities around the world.
During the 2013 campaign, employees will also be partnering with Canstruction®, an international nonprofit, to build giant structures out of canned food in five of its largest cities. All the food items used to build them will be donated to local food banks. BNY Mellon expects its structures to contribute more than 12,000 pounds of food and help its community partners provide approximately 9,000 meals to people who are hungry.
