A game-changing partnership with the Milwaukee Bucks and BMO Harris Bank
The Milwaukee Bucks, BMO Harris Bank, and SecureFutures are teaming up!
SecureFutures is honored to have been chosen for a $25,000 investment by BMO Harris and the Milwaukee Bucks to expand the reach of the Money Sense program in 11 schools over the next two years. In addition to this financial commitment, both organizations will provide volunteers to educate and mentor students in the program.
“This generous commitment will allow us to reach 2,000 more teens over the next two years, equipping them with the financial fundamentals they need to secure their futures,” said CEO Brenda Campbell. “It’s encouraging to see visionary corporate leaders like the Milwaukee Bucks and BMO Harris Bank investing in the concrete needs of the community, transforming lives through the power of financial literacy and education.”
Representatives from the Bucks and BMO Harris Bank joined us at a press conference at Barack Obama School of Career and Technical Education, the current site of one of our Money Sense programs. Our new partners got to watch some of our fantastic volunteers in action as they delivered the “To Your Credit” section of the Money Sense curriculum. Student participants shared what the program has taught them and why it will make an impact in their lives.
“Our partners at BMO Harris Bank share our passion and vision for positively influencing youth in our community,” said Bucks Director of Corporate Social Responsibility Arvind Gopalratnam. “This joint commitment allows us to expand access to SecureFutures financial literacy curriculum as well as connect local professionals within our organization to more youth across Milwaukee Public Schools.”
“We believe in supporting financial literacy education and promoting financial wellbeing among our younger generations because we know the impact financial decisions have on individuals and communities,” said Jud Snyder, President, BMO Harris Equipment Finance Company, and BMO’s Senior Executive in Milwaukee. “We encourage all eligible students to take advantage of the program to learn about financial matters and develop skills that will be essential throughout adulthood.”
