Today BNY Mellon reported that it will donate $100,000 to non-profit organizations in the wake of the senseless and tragic events at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. BNY Mellon is donating $50,000 to the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh and $50,000 to the Anti-Defamation League.
BNY Mellon employees are also able to contribute to these or other organizations through the firm’s community giving program, which provides a 100 percent match for donations to approved charitable organizations for eligible employees.
In addition, the sign atop BNY Mellon Center will remain blue, the color of divinity in Judaism, for eleven nights in honor of the eleven victims.
