BMO Harris Financial Corp. CEO Christopher Begy and other BMO Harris Bank team members joined forces this holiday season to help young students in the Milwaukee, Wisconsin area grow their money skills.
FSR Corporate Social Responsibility Vice President Judy Chapa joined the BMO Harris team to cover the story.
While the holiday season focuses heavily on spending, BMO Harris employees worked with students to brainstorm creative ways to earn money and save it for the future through their “Talk With Our Kids About Money” program.
“BMO Harris Bank is a very strong supporter of financial literacy,” said Begy in the video. “We believe that having conversations with our children about money is a critical step on the path for them to financial understanding and financial success.”
While many parents want to talk to their children about growing strong financial habits, parents often don’t feel well-equipped to have the conversation. Begy said that he and his employees work with students to bridge that gap.
“We’re bankers, but we’re people first,” Begy said.
Congratulations BMO Harris Bank!
