M&T Bank/Partners Trust Bank Charitable Fund
A donor-advised fund established by Partners Trust Bank Charitable Foundation during the merger of Partners Trust and M&T Bank for general charitable purposes.
Created in 2007, the M&T Bank/Partners Trust Bank Charitable Fund (MTPT) was established by Partners Trust Bank Charitable Foundation during the merger of Partners Trust and M&T Bank. It was decided that the generous contributions from Partners Trust Bank would be managed through a donor-advised fund at The Community Foundation and that grantmaking would be jointly advised to provide continued support for the Mohawk Valley. Initially focused on supporting literacy programs, MTPT expanded its investments to address additional areas of need and to focus on partnering with organizations that provide educational enrichment, with the hopes that funding opportunities for learning will contribute to strengthening the community for the future.
